    I figured it was about time to shift to an intermediate phase. My SS log can be seen here: http://startingstrength.com/resource...ad.php?t=38136

    Current stats: 5'11", now around 175-180lbs, I've been doing SS seen the beginning of March. In addition I'm a runner, typically doing between four and five miles most mornings, including a long run on Sundays (presently training for a half marathon at the end of October, afterwards I'll run 10 miles on my long run days. I've been doing light squats the night before my long runs. I'm definitely not the model for DTP but I am certainly the strongest I've ever been in my life. My current lifts are:
    Squat: 290x3x5
    Press: 135x3x5
    Bench Press: 185x3x5
    Deadlift: 335x1x6 (did an extra rep by mistake)
    Power Snatch: 105x3x2

    Wednesday, 10/2/13

    Squat
    45x2x5
    145x1x5
    195x1x3
    245x1x2
    295x3x(5-5-1)

    Several of my reps ended up on the high side. Vision was a bit out of focus afterwards. If I don't get it my next heavy session I'll do a 10% reset.

    Bench Press
    45x2x5
    80x1x5
    115x1x3
    150x1x2
    187.5x3x5

    This was more like it. Did all my reps without too much trouble.

    Deadlift
    135x2x5
    190x1x3
    240x1x3
    290x1x2
    340x1x5

    Meant to do two more reps during my 190lb set but stopped at 3 and didn't realize it until after I had reviewed my form. My form, still tending to round my back a bit, especially on the last few main reps.

    75x1x5
    95x1x3
    115x1x2

    Had to grind out the very last rep but did it.

    90x1x5
    140x1x3

    Light Session

    Squat
    45x2x5
    90x1x5
    140x1x3
    190x1x2
    240x3x5

    Press

    65x1x5
    90x1x3
    115x1x2
    140x3x(4-4-3)

    Didn't sleep very well last night, couple that with feeling yucky on and off today and I didn't feel explosive enough to mess with power snatches tonight.

    Week 31 Wednesday, 10/16/13

    Had a stomach bug several days ago followed by a bad sore throat that took its toll on me this workout.

    Squat
    45x2x5
    115x1x5
    165x1x3
    215x1x2
    240x1x1
    265x3x5

    Felt tough.

    Bench Press
    45x2x5
    85x1x5
    120x1x3
    155x1x2
    192.5x3x(4-3-3)

    Really felt zapped here.

    Deadlift
    135x2x5
    190x1x5
    245x1x3
    300x1x2
    350x1x1

    The one highlight of my session was that I did all my warmup sets with a DOH grip including the 300lb set, which is the heaviest I've lifted DOH. Did them without any grip trouble, then bombed at the main set. Going to take the rest of the week off.

    250x1x1
    275x3x(3-5-5)

    Going to do my next session with the same poundages.

    Bench Press
    45x2x5
    85x1x5
    120x1x3
    155x1x2

    Week 33 Monday, 10/28/13

    Going to try and get my ass in gear with these HLM sessions.

    Squat
    45x2x5
    125x1x5
    175x1x3
    225x1x2
    250x1x1
    275x3x5

    My adductor's been sore the past week or two (due in part to my long runs no doubt). It was bothering me a bit the first two work sets but felt better the last set.

    Bench Press
    45x2x5
    85x1x5
    120x1x3
    155x1x2
    192.5x3x(4-4-3)

    Time for a 10% deload.


    Deadlift
    135x2x5
    190x1x5
    245x1x3
    300x1x2
    350x1x5

    Attacked the DL tonight and finally got all my reps.

    Wednesday, 10/30/13

    Light Session

    Squat
    45x2x5
    130x1x5
    180x1x3
    230x1x2
    255x1x1
    280x3x5

    One or two reps were just a tad high but otherwise a good if tough session with squats.

    Press
    45x2x5
    75x1x5
    95x1x3
    115x1x2
    135x3x5

    I went ahead and deloaded five lbs since I haven't done presses for three or so weeks. The very last rep was a real grinder to complete, largely due to me pausing at the bottom after doing the fourth rep.

    Power Snatch
    45x2x5
    60x1x3
    75x1x2
    90x1x2
    105x4x2

    Ditto on deloading for the PSes. Some of the main reps were better than others; one thing I need to do is concentrate on jumping more explosively during main reps.

    Week 34 Monday, 11/4/13

    On vacation away from home, so I did this session at a commercial gym.

    Bench Press
    45x2x5
    75x1x5
    105x1x3
    140x1x2
    172.5x3x5

    There was only one squat rack and it was in use so I started with BPs.

    Squat
    45x2x5
    135x1x5
    185x1x3
    235x1x2
    260x1x1
    285x3x5

    The squat rack had a mirror in front of it, so I got to see how red my face gets when I do heavy squats.

    Deadlift
    135x2x5
    195x1x5
    250x1x3
    305x1x2
    355x1x3

    The bar barely budged on the fourth rep.
