Training 11/10-11/16

11/10- Gold's 5 in 37:25 (7:29 pace).  Modest improvement over yesterday but still clearly off.  This will do okay for a standard issue run but I could not even attempt a quality session.  Took 6 Thym-Adren + Cal/Mag with no taurine.  Thym-Adren must be cut.  If I reduce it to 3-4, will I be able to take taurine again?  What would happen if I went with ADHS?  Questions never end.

11/11- Veteran's Day.  I had the day off work so I took advantage by doing a daylight run just before noon in nice weather conditions.  I did an aggressive cut from 6 pills down to 3 pills and it left me feeling slightly over-stimulated.  It seems like 4 Thym-Adren is the magic number at least for now.  Workout was still good.  10 miles in 71:27 (7:09 pace) and I had something left at the end.  Fastest mile of the day was #10 at 6:48.  If I'm off by 1 pill, I can handle a quality day but a race would be average at best.  If I'm 2 pills off, a standard issue is all I can do.  Still unsure about the taurine but am hoping that I can take it.  Added a mile cool in honor of Veterans.
Grade:A-/2 credit/distance=11.0

11/12- Weather has turned cold as it often does after Veteran's Day.  I hope we'll get some days sunny and in the 60s in early December.  Went with 4 Thym-Adren and no taurine and it was NOT the answer.
AM- Lakeshore 5 with the Gnomes in 38:30 (7:42 pace).  Able to keep it pretty even but each mile passed with increasing strain, which is not what's supposed to happen at this pace
Grade:C+/1 credit/distance=5.5

PM- Popped some taurine and got better immediately.  Gold's 5K in 19:55 (6:24 pace) with splits of 6:16-6:27-6:32-40.  On the right track now but I still didn't feel fully dialed in.  When on taurine, I may find that 3 in the optimal dose of Thym-Adren.
Grade:B+/2 credit/distance=3.5

11/13- Went with 3 Thym-Adren + taurine and it was the right formula.  I was really dialed in and it felt great.  6 miles in 43:23 (7:14 pace).  Legs were a bit sore from the last 2 days of workouts but the engine was very strong.  Another 20 miles at this pace on fresh legs does not seem insurmountable today.
Grade:A/1 credit/distance=6.0

11/14- Planned rest day.  Legs are sore but I'm sure I would have been up for a standard issue run.  Need to save it for a long run tomorrow.

11/15- Slept in so I could run when it's sunny and 45 instead of dark and 25.  Trak Shak 7 and 9er in 2:01:11 (7:34 pace).  Splits varied considerably depending on the terrain but I kept every Mile below 8 and my fastest of the day was #16 in a strong 7:09.  1st half in 60:20, 2nd half in 60:51.  Slightly sluggish but it was probably delayed onset soreness from the week's workouts.  Barring an "F" tomorrow, I'm going to win for the 4th time in 5 weeks.
Grade:B+/2 credit/distance=16.0

11/16- Resolute group run and I took off on my own.  I could not believe how fresh I felt after yesterday.  I was doing sub-7 in the first half going mostly downhill.  The course heated up in the 2nd half but the pace remained strong.  Finished 5 miles in 35:21 (7:04 pace).  VERY GOOD.
Grade:A/1 credit/distance=5.0

Weekly summary:
Win #22 on the year.  I'm ready for Tulsa and if I can keep the formula level, I can expect a good time.  In theory, this formula should both get be to balance and eliminate the toxic copper.  This is my highest distance recorded this year as well.  I have sub-3 talent if I am balanced.
Distance= 52.0/ GPA= 33.9/10= 3.39
YTD: 1,605.  Record: 22-22 with a 2.73 GPA.
