Well, you will need to continue running if you intend to throw down some good times this fall. If you don't do any running this summer you will find yourself in a huge hole once the season starts. It is not fun, I know this from experience.
I am a bike racer and my season runs from Feb-Sept. I did not touch my bike last winter while I was lifting and doing CF. I hit this season in such a deep hole it took 3 months before I started finding my form.

Re: SS and large weight increases

Just want to let you guys know, I benched 95 for 3x5 today easily and then did an extra set of 5 just for the heck of it.

To those in the same situation as me, I just started drinking a lot of extra milk, trying to sleep more, and did dips and 3 sets of pushups after every workout (M/W/F). Last bench workout I went down to 85 5x5, and then today was excellent. I also tacked on another 10 pounds to my squat today, so that was fun too.

Many thanks.
