I live and train in Naperville, IL. I train at either North Central Colleges indoor and outdoor track and Benedictine University’s outdoor track. I thought since I am now competing at Masters Meets that this thread could use a boost since it’s not used very often.
By now you all know that I had ACL Reconstructive Surgery on December 17, 2010. My goal when I returned was to break 11.00. I did achieve that goal and believe that I can run in the 10.60’s.

Current Lifting Bests Post Surgically
I did not max out during my season. I had a few weeks of self testing and I progressed to the following numbers.
Power Clean – 230
Power Snatch – 175
Bench Press – 275
Back Squat – 385
I am starting to work some things out for my off season and progression into my regular season. I haven’t set a date for training to begin, but I am nearing that. I am going through my workouts and looking at things that I felt worked very well for me and things that didn’t work so well. I do think that I benefited from days off throughout the week. I don’t think my body can handle training everyday and if I can benefit from a recovery day vs. a tempo recovery I’ll take the day off.
