12/23- 1 Mile at Gold's in an even 8:00 before heading home. Never felt good during the run and faded badly at the end. 2 Thym-Adren may have worked but I tried an enzyme supplement that clearly hurt me.
I have a last ditch plan to solve this instability so stay tuned. I believe that it is a liver issue and the plan is detox. The doctor finally called me back and I have not received the medical report because the lab NEVER RECEIVED IT!
12/24- Planned rest day
12/25- Planned rest day.
12/26- Very poor performance at Gold's. 3 miles in 23:37 (7:52 pace) on a magnesium day. Tomorrow is a Thym-Adren day. Started off pretty well but the pace steadily slowed after the first half mile. Splits were 7:30-7:54-8:13. I hope to do the detox this weekend. I need 2 grapefruits and 1 lemon to mix the key concoction. If I can't do it this weekend, next weekend for sure. I do not expect an instant miracle cure but based on what others have reported, there is a realistic chance of improvement in my tolerance for key supplements.
12/27- Thym-Adren day and I was only slightly better. Same old tired 3 mile run at Gold's in a time of 22:57 (7:39 pace) running nearly all out. Pace was much more even this time around (7:37-7:43-7:37). Simply put, 2 pills simply won't cut it but I cannot process any more right now. The detox is a "go" for tomorrow. I have purchased all the necessary items. I have to fast for several hours so I'm off to get a steak dinner.
12/28- Detox. No supplements allowed. I can only eat dry cereal until 2 PM then it's nothing to eat or drink with the exception of the detox drinks. No running today.
12/29- 4x1 Mile at Gold's. I started the workout on zero pills but I took 1 Mag during each interval. Splits were 8:50-8:04-7:23-6:27. This is encouraging. I got significantly better after each pill and showed the greatest improvement after pill #3. Tomorrow is big. It's a Thym-Adren day and I will see if I can tolerate more than 2 pills. If so, I will see if I can tolerate at least a trace of Mag. I am just 3 miles shy of 1,750 on the year.
12/30- Thym-Adren day. 1 mile in 7:25 on 2 pills. Popped another 2 pills and this time, I DID NOT TIGHTEN UP! I found another gear and covered the next 3 miles in 20:43 (6:54 pace). Next, I sprayed on some Mag chloride then proceeded to clock a 5:56 mile on tired legs. I declare that the detox has been a success. I will not be retiring tomorrow. I may still be sensitive but at least I can tolerate the pills again. Passed 1,750 miles on the year.
12/31- 2 mile quickie in 14-flat (7:00 pace). Felt good but a bit overstimulated. I have increased my dosage but it's not as high as it was before. I should be able to tolerate as much as I need.
Nightmare year is over.
