Male, 5'10, 260 lbs
I've been doing SS for roughly 5 months now. I've been bulking for since I've started, not sure how many calories I just count protein. This is my lift progression so far (all for 5 reps):
Squats: 135 - 335
Bench: 95 - 200
OHP: 70 - 155
DL: 185 - 335
I had a lot of trouble with deadlifting when I started, so that's why it's so low.
For assistance work I do power shrugs, static holds, hammer curls, tricep extension, and dumbell bench. I do all of my accessory work for 3 sets of 8-12 reps. So far I don't think it hindered my progress, if anything it's helped me lift more. Not to mention those hypertrophy gains.
In planning on bulking for another 3-5 months to see how much more progress I can make. After I'm satisfied with my lifts I plan on going on a long cut, and possibly switching to a split, or possibly the Texas method. What're the chances of me hittin a 2 plate OHP, 2.5 plate bench, 4.5 plate squat, and a 5 plate deadlift in that time frame? My lifts are still progressing fairly well, with my squats and deadlifts going up 5 lbs every workout, and my bench and OHP going up 5 lbs every other workout. Is there anything I should change?
Am I close to making it?
Also pic related, my stats.

I started C25k 2 weeks and a half ago, and I can't get over week 2. I'm a fatty in bad shape but my problem isn't keeping the rythm up, it's the fact that my calf muscles fucking hurt like a bitch while jogging.
Is this supposed to be? After running 4x 1:30 I just can't even walk anymore since it hurts so bad. Sprinting is okay for me though, I don't feel a lot of pain while doing that, but jogging is almost impossible.
Should I just go on and it will get better by itself or isn't this normal?
(also my calf muscles don't hurt after workout, it's really only when I'm jogging.)
