    Thanks. Next time I run the 400's, which should be in 3 weeks, I should be around 1:15-1:17 minute range again like I was last year.

    I ran yesterday (Tuesday), and I'm going to rest these next couple of days. I should be back in time Friday to do my ME Lower/100 meter sprints.

    Back Squats: Find 1RM (315#) failed 325#
    Drop Set: 185x8

    Accessory:
    Good Mornings: 2x10 (155#)
    Seated Hamstring Curls: 2x (#)

    Assistance:
    Leg Press: 2x8 (405#)
    Glutes Machine: 90x10,110x10
    Lying Hamstring Curls: 2x15 (70#)

    Optional Conditioning:
    Optional Warm-up:
    4◊100 Meter Sprints (Sprint 100 Meters and slow jog for 100 Meters x 4).
    Rest for approximately 2 minutes.

    Working Sets:
    8x100 Meter Repeats (Walk back to starting).

    Post time per Repeats to comments:
    #1: 16.2 seconds
    #2: 16.2 seconds
    #3: 15.6 seconds
    #4: 15.2 seconds
    #5: 15.0 seconds
    #6: 14.8 seconds
    #7: 14.5 seconds
    #8: 14.6 seconds

    Just got in this morning at 10:30 from Disney. 315# went up pretty fast and felt easy. Failed 325# about halfway up. Folded right over as usual when I fail on the squats.
    Haven't done 100 meter repeats in years, so I'm happy with 14.5 seconds.

    Hopefully next time I'll get it under 6 minutes so I can start adding some laps.

    Your name change definitely threw me off at first. LOL.
