This footage shows an ingenious swimmer still going in the lockdown - tethered inside a PADDLING poolDedicated Jennie Jones attached a tether to the garden fence and climbed in a large paddling pool Jennie, 41 from Bradford-on-Avon, Wilts, is able to swim just as she would if she was still working her day job as an open water coach and PT at her business 'BOAfit'Jennie has posted her amazing invention online for all to see '@boafit'Jennie said: "My life is swimming.
I'm a member of my local swim club - BOA ASC - so swim with them 3 times a week, then teach 7 sessions a week, then swim a couple of times in open water now it's warmed up a bit."Basically, I spend most of my time in the water.
I've messed around with tethering before in a small hotel pool.
When lockdown was announced knew that this was the way to go to get my swim fix."My husband measured me up and researched the best pool and then we started the work in the garden to get it in, had to move a few plants and do some digging, but it's totally worth it for my mental and physical health.
I feel very lucky to have been able to do it.""I've signed up for a 21 mile swim challenge (not all in one go) and am aiming to do the distance in my little makeshift endless pool."
