11/24- Spent the day in Little Rock to break up the trip home. Did a 3 mile recovery jog on a bike trail along the Arkansas river. Felt terrible again but on the day after a half race, I won't give myself less than a "C." For the record, my time was 25:24 (8:28 pace) and I did loosen up a bit and turned in a negative split (13:00-12:24). Tomorrow, I'm back off the liver glandular.
11/25- Planned rest day. Travel.
11/26- AWFUL! 3 miles in 28:09 (9:23 pace). Liver pills should be out of my system by now. Went with 6 Thym-Adren and needless to say, it was not the answer. I'm cutting it to 3 tomorrow and probably need ADHS, which I won't be able to take until I get home.
11/27- WORSE. 1 mile in 9:12. I'm shutting it down until I get back to Birmingham on Sunday.
11/28- Did not take any pills and feel about the same as yesterday. Unplanned rest day.
11/29- Travel day. Flight back to Little Rock and I plan to drive halfway back to Birmingham that night so I aim to be in Tupelo with a short 3 hour drive to go.
11/30- I was getting worse by the day and was barely able to drive home safely this morning. Got home and popped some ADHS and saw some modest improvement. 3 miles on Wisteria in a blazing fast 27:28 (9:09 pace). Modest improvement over the pathetic attempt 3 days earlier and I should be up for a standard issue run by tomorrow.
I can't take a mulligan on this week because I already used it over the summer. As it stands now, it's still possible to make my year end goals but I'll need to ace everything for the remainder of the year. Worst non-injury week on record.
