Victoria Lombardi

[We asked Victoria how her college's academic and xc programs were responding to the coronavirus.]


School is going well! I am living at home this semester and commuting to Stonehill twice a week, which has definitely been my biggest adjustment.

Training has certainly been interesting-I am lucky that I get to actually see my coach, which I know a lot of programs don't get to do.

As far as working out, I am able to work out with my coach and teammates once a week. We wear masks until we are 14 feet apart in order to minimize contact. We meet in groups of 5 and have limited access to facilities, so Coach Boen has had to get creative!

Since we are technically in off-season, we have to abide by the rules of the NCAA, which limits our practice time. My training is much less structured now; I am given a weekly mileage, a loose lifting plan, and two workouts every week. The rest is up to me!

While I wish that I could practice more often and with all of my teammates, I am very grateful that the Stonehill community has been following guidelines and that we are still able to have in-person classes and athletics.
