Pamela Ware: Staying Healthy, Stay Home

What was your main athletic focus prior to COVID-19 actions?

Before the COVID-19 started I was focusing on Diving World Series, we had just finished the first leg in Montreal and was heading to Russia and London for the other 2. These competitions were a chance to possibly be pre-qualified for Tokyo2020.

Understand you may not have a definitive competition schedule at the moment, how are you approaching your training now?

Just like everyone else, I do not know when I will be back to the pool training normally, but I have an extra bedroom in my apartment and I transformed it into a small gym. I’m able to do weight training almost the same as I usually do and I have a treadmill and bike so I’m able to do cardio. It is obviously not the same. Some days I have ZERO motivation to get out of bed and workout inside my house but I still push myself to get what needs to be done to stay in shape and ready for when I get to start diving again!

What positives, if any, can you take from our situation with respect to your training and being best prepared for a

return to competition?

It is obviously not the same training inside a small room. Some days I have ZERO motivation to get out of bed and workout inside my house but I still push myself to get what needs to be done to stay in shape and ready for when I get to start diving again! I want my comeback to be smooth and easy so I am doing everything possible to make that happen.

How has your training benefitted your mental state as we Canadians maintain social distancing?

I am having a hard time. This situation has for sure pushed me to be mentally stronger. I have felt pretty much every emotion possible, from angry to sad to stressed, happy, excited and so on… But I am trying to stay positive as much as possible, some days are easier than others but I still try!

I love your honestly Pamela - thanks for sharing the ups and downs that you are experiencing.  This has been a battle for all of us.
