It has become painfully clear that I MUST talk to the Health Coach. I don't mind paying the money but I had better get top notch service in return and I will not play the "buy supps from me or else" game. The CBS/NOS product is a NO! I cannot even take a quarter of a pill without a reaction and the zinc/copper sensitivity is BACK WITH A VENGEANCE! A quarter of a liver pill is not enough but half is too much. I simply cannot manage this on my own.
I have ordered another SOD supplement and a product called Butyrate for ammonia issues. I'm also looking into an ammonia blood test. Needless to say, all my emotional strength is gone.
5/4- Horrible has become the norm as of late. 2 miles in 16:50 with splits of 7:53-8:57.
5/5- Took a quarter of a liver pill and improved to 15:26 with even splits. If I had taken half ....
5/6- Slightly better.
AM- 2 miles in 14:57 but faded badly at the end.
PM- Trak Shak 3 in 22:20 (7:27 pace) but this time, I kept the pace even
5/7- A better with or without test with 5-Methyl Folate and I failed it.
AM- 1 mile in 7:30 and fading at the end. Popped half a pill and was MUCH worse.
PM- Got some clearance. 2.5 on Lakeshore in 19:40 (7:52 pace) but this time, it was evenly paced.
4 miles on the day and so far, 13 on the week.
5/8- Canterbury 4 in 29:52 (7:28 pace) with a slight negative split. Not half bad today. I took half a Liver pill and tolerated a bit of taurine. I'm not touching any MTHFR support or CBS/NOS until further notice. I want to try the Butyrate tomorrow and I want to see where I stand with the blood ammonia test.
5/9- Attempted the BTC group run and ended up with another walk of shame. Held a sub-8 pace for 2 miles then crashed and called it a day after 3 miles in 25:57 (8:39 pace) with a 3rd mile over 10 minutes. Tacked on another junk mile in the evening and felt no better. Filled out the form for the Health Coach consult and I could have my appointment as early as next week.
5/10- This is NUTS! It was another better with or without test. Led off with a comfortable 7:18 mile then tried butyrate (for ammonia) and had seen enough with a 4:32 over the next half mile (9:04 pace) then took a SOD pill and improved to 3:38 (7:16 pace). Walked a lap then ran a 3rd mile in 7:39. Butyrate is a NO so that means I have exhausted every option for CBS. They all failed but the SOD is a success and may help the copper sensitivity.
Totaled 24 miles.
