Default Starting Over

Hey all, just found this site last night and figured I'd log my progress while I begin Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength program. I've done several 5/3/1 cycles last year, the Russian Squat Program( this year ), and lately a bastard 5x5/D.C. type of program so I figured I should get back on track and build-up my squat, dead, and bench numbers. I haven't tested my 1 rep max in awhile, but my personal bests are:

Squat: 365x3 [ early this year at parallel]
Deadlift: 345x2 [ done last week ]
Bench: 250x8 [ early this year ]

Goal: To bring-up squat and deadlift as I just came off a 3 week run of SD@ 15mg with a total of 16 lbs gained. Also, to train the squat below parallel as mines is right at parallel. Not really looking to add mass, but I imagine the squats and DL's will pack some on & this is the heaviest I've ever been so I'm going to see if I can maintain/better my 2-mile APFT run times simultaneously.
