Plenty of fresh air here in WV. :)

I forgot I started this thread.
I did manage to get a first place in my age group (30-39) in the last 5K of the year with a 23:14. I know it's not setting any records but I'm extremely happy to have that medal.
Unfortunately I injured my knee shortly after, so this winter I have barely run at all. Such is life. I hope to get running again soon.

My knee is all healed up and I've been running regularly again. I took first overall in a local small-turnout 5K with a 21:50. A few days ago I ran a 21:22 5K on a nice, flat course. Current weight is 170lbs.
In previous posts I was not running 3 miles. It had to be closer to 2.8-2.9 miles.
Current farthest run: 13.2 miles.

Competed in powerlifting for a while and will be getting back into it again soon.

Here's my best.

Squat:
raw - 600
in gear - 875

Bench:
raw - 335(easy)
shirted - 545

Deadlift: belt only - 600 (in competition)


raw squat vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ho-CQO5AWs
deadlift vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZCcoGFM4I1M

And here's a vid that I laugh at to this day. This was the first time in this particular bench shirt (inzer phenom) and I was getting crazy pop off the boards (no, it didn't hurt a bit). Was also the first time hitting 500 on any bench variation.

I ran a 21:10 5K yesterday. It's just a 12 second improvement but felt awesome. I foresee 20's for 2013!

We always bench in the power rack for that reason.

Talking to my training partner now. We're going to do an 8 week 5/3/1 routine to get re-acclimated and then get back into the conjugate method. I will hit a 1000lb squat in competition.

I went to Baghdad in 2008 at 142 lbs. I had been real sick up to a month pre-deployment. My normal weight was 153-ish.

After 8 months in Baghdad I returned home 186.7 lbs. There was nothing to do but work, eat, train, eat, train, eat, sleep - repeat.

At 5'7" these are my personal bests (2008):

Squat: 500 lbs - 1RM
Deadlift: 405 lbs - 1RM
Bench: 305 lbs - 1RM

I made the 1100 lb Club which was cool.

BEST RUN OF MY LIFE, Broke all personal records today, 9:09 First mile, 29:15 5K Pace and ran a Full 4 Miles in 38:01!

Not too shabby seeing as the beginning of 2013 I was almost 275 pounds, Could barely run for 1 min. Down to 230 now! Not stopping this freight train!
