8/31- Severe reaction to methyl B-12 has yet to clear. I know for sure now that any form is toxic to me. The hair and urine test will reveal possible toxic cobalt or low lithium. Unplanned rest day.
9/1- AM. 1 mile in 8:30 with splits of 4:02-4:28. OUCH!
PM- Broke the "Mendoza line" with 3 miles at sub-8 pace just barely with a hard fought 23:54 (7:58 pace) but did manage a slight negative split (12:02-11:52). It will take time for the B-12 to clear and I am not touching any form of it for a long time.
9/2- AM 2 mile quickie at Gold's and it was pretty solid. Finished in 14:30 with a negative split (7:19-7:11)
PM- NIGHTMARE! Trak Shak loop and crashed 2.2 miles into a 5 mile loop and completed the walk of shame. Actually, I did do a few spurts of slow jogging. 13.1 miles on a day like this would be pure hell but I probably could finish. 4 miles this session with an average pace near 8:30.
UPDATE: Feeling a lot better after taking the All in One. I had been avoiding it because it contains B-12. Now, I know I need it.
9/3- Not much better. Gold's 4 in 31:44 (7:56 pace). Again, I was just under the Mendoza line over 1 extra mile. Faded pretty badly with splits of 15:21-16:23. This is not working. I've got to do some more experimenting.
9/4- Successfully switched from ADHS back to Thym-Adren and now it seems like I cannot tolerate TMG anymore. Still, it was a nice improvement over yesterday. It was a quickie because I want no excuses for tomorrow's long run. 2 miles in 14:15 (7:07 pace) with splits of 6:59-7:16. I was fading but I had more in the tank.
9/5- FAILURE! I can no longer tolerate the TMG, which was not a huge surprise. I am beginning to wonder now if the SUOX drops are helping with the sulfur at all. I've become so desperate that I have ordered Lithium, which may help B-12 transport and aid in methylation.
Run #1- Attempted the group run and died after about 200-300 meters. Finished 1 mile in 10:48 running almost all out. That's right. I was less than half the speed of my adult PR.
Run #2- Another 1 mile junk run this time on Wisteria. Apparently, I've gotten some clearance as my time is down to 8:58.
9/6- Only slightly better. 1 mile in 7:53 and had nothing left in the tank. I'n quitting the SUOX.
8 weeks from retirement now and it's looking bleak.
