Default How to remember what i played for jazz solo?

Im working thru the art of bop drumming and im working on soloing right now. There is this question and answer soloing format, which is this:

All measures are in 4/4.

Question 1, two measures. Answer 1, two measures.
Question 1, two measures, Answer 2, two measures.
Answer 1, two measures. Answer 2, two measures.
Answer 1, two measures. Question 1, two measures.

Im having trouble remembering more sophisticated phrases that i just played while inprovising. The point for me is to be able to improvise the solo while remembering what i played. How can i progressively expand my memory while improvising? Planning out and practicing what i want to play for the solo kind of defeats the purpose, other than question 1 which is based off the melody of the piece.
