8/17- I know for sure now that the Methionine is a NO at least for now. I do believe that the SUOX drops and the TMG will work for me. Did 1.5 at Gold's in a time of 12:22 (8:15 pace). Passed 1 mile fading in 7:42 then popped the forbidden pill and slipped to a 4:40 (9:20 pace) and bagged it.
8/18- AM- Bumped the SUOX up to 3 drops and the TMG up to 2 pills and ran the same distance also at Gold's in a time of 9:30 (6:20 pace) for an impressive MINUS 2:52 overall (1:55/mile). In a mile time trial, I believe I would have been faster than the 6:09 last week but just short of breaking 6. Maybe I will try tomorrow but with a half marathon in 3.5 weeks, I need to get my distance up if I am to finish with a non-disaster.
PM- Felt just a hair off on 2 TMG so I tried a 3rd and it was a mistake. No attempt to run this evening. There is a CHANCE that the SUOX will solve my sensitivity to TMG.
8/19- 1 Mile in 8:45. That's a failure for today. I thought that the TMG would allow me to take as many drops as I want. WRONG! 4 drops was a disaster. It's got to be 2-3 with 2 TMG. I've had to pee a lot and felt a little better afterwards every time. It's got to be detox. I need to get up to 6 drops but that's not going to happen for a while The only other thing that I am considering is Methyl-Force from Yasko but that will likely wait until after the next race.
8/20- Not much better. Endured 3 miles at Gold's in 25:51 (8:37 pace).
8/21- AWFUL! Did not even attempt a workout. ADHS is the culprit.
8/22- Same formula as my good day on Tuesday. It allowed me to run 1.5 @ 6:20 but today, I managed only 1 mile in 7:58 and needed a downhill finish to break 8. BLEAK!
PM- Little better. 3 miles at Gold's in 23:29 (7:50 pace) with splits of 7:44-7:56-7:49. I am going to detox tonight. Little to gain but nothing to lose.
8/23- AWFUL! This time I DID tolerate ADHS but not the TMG. I did detox last night but did not pass many stones and don't think it was very effective. Passed 1 mile in 8:02 then died and it was so bad in Mile 2 that I didn't want to know.
I am now 3 weeks out from Pennsylvania and 10 out from South Carolina. Looking bleak, I'm going to try 3 drops of SUOX and a new nucleotide product called ACE for sodium retention. It's looking more and more like I will be an ex-runner come November.
