6/5- 3 miles out and back in Great Falls, Montana before leaving for Canada. Finished in a slow time of 25:19 (8:26 pace). No need to panic over this one. 2 days after a race, I should be less than fresh but this clearly did not feel right. I definitely need the Ultimate B but need to limit B-6 Without a B-complex, I cannot take B-12, which is necessary because of my genetics. Blood donation will be done within the next 2 weeks. Morley seems to think Iron dysregulation is the source. We shall see.
6/6- Much better. 3 miles through Calgary's Prince's Island Park in a solid 21:56 (7:19 pace). I was treated to nice river scenery with skyline views. It reminded me a bit of Denver's Cherry Creek Trail. The only real complaint was a bit of stomach distress. I had to stop near the end to prevent an unfortunate incident but kept it clean and added a half mile cool back to my hotel. This was the only day that I really splurged on lodging but it proved to be a good call.
6/7- Another 3 miles this time in Banff. Slipped to 22:30 but that's okay. Long cool.
6/8- Junk run. 20- 21 minute run and did not even track the distance. Clear that I need Ultimate B- complex
Grade:C/1 credit/distance- 2.5
6/9- Planned rest day
6/10- Governor's Cup half marathon in 1:44:38 plus a cool.
PM- 1 mile shakeout untimed.
Grade:B/4 credit/distance- 15.0
6/11- Naked 2 mile on Wisteria just to hit a round number.
Decent race but not quite good enough to atone for the B-vitamin lapses earlier in the week. GPA continues to rise however and I remain on pace for 1500 miles.
Distance=30.0/ GPA= 2.75
YTD: 702 miles. 5-17 with a 2.11 GPA
