Training has been going great so far!

Well, I make no secrets about it. I want to compete again. Watching the 2015 Track and Field Championships ignited something in me as watching any major Track and Field Championships does. I want it and if my two achilles' can hold up, I will continue training for it. Never did I imagine that my achilles' would be my limiting factors but here I am trying to rehab not one but two damaged ones. They don't hurt 100% of the time but they don't feel good 100% of the time either. It sucks, but I have been better about wearing my Kinesio Tape before doing any real running and trying to wear my compression socks a bit more.

In the Weight Room, I adopted that 5-3-1 Training Program and that has been going very well for me. I'm on week 8 right now which is my deload week but aside from my deloads my reps have been continually going up even though my weight is going up! Thus, I am making good progress. The major lifts for this program are Bench Press, Squat, Deadlift, and Shoulder Press. After I finish my required lifts for the day, I normally finish up with some Pullups/Chinup work and a bunch of Ab work.

If I can make my speed increase the same way my strength is going up then this will be a wonderful season. I figure what the hell, I can still try to beat all of the other 30+ year olds in the nation.
