7/6- AM Only took half an alanine pill just to see what would happen. I saw gradual improvement. Did 2 miles at Gold's in 14:38 (7:19 pace) with splits of 7:13-7:25. 3rd mile likely would have been close to 8 however.
PM- Took another alanine plus taurine just to see if I could tolerate it. I could not. 2 miles on Lakeshore in 16:56 (8:28 pace) with splits of 7:53-9:03. Got home and tried more alanine and it was no better. Maybe worse.
UPDATE: Got my urine test results back and I am NOT happy. Stay tuned for the results and a rant coming. I am indeed burdened by sulfur and taurine but not as badly as I feared. The cause of the sensitivity is likely a low methionine level but I can't do anything about it now because of the high taurine.
7/7- Beta alanine has failed. WHY SHOULD I EVEN TRY ANYMORE?
7/8- Looking more and more like I am screwed. CBS drops have failed again.
7/9- AM- 1.5 miles in 12:52 (8:35 pace). Very poor but I found some solace in the fact that I improved after taking B-12.
PM- 2 miles in 15:26 (7:43 pace) plus a cool.
7/10- 1 Mile in 9:45 and it looks like ADHS is the culprit. I am officially screwed if I have to stop these pills.
7/11- Cut the ADHS down to 1 pill and improved the Mile to 7:43. Took just a trace of TMG and ran the next 3 in 22:10 (7:23 pace). I got the sulfate test strips and the results are alarming. Still premature to discuss it and I'm not sure if I did the test correctly.
