As I got ready for my run I felt great, my blood sugar was at 130 and my body was feeling strong. I had no route planned I just wanted to go out for a run and enjoy myself. As the run began I felt really good, I decided to turn towards downtown and go on a usual training run that I did in the summer. As I hit the hill part of my run my legs began to feel a bit tired but for the most part I felt great. The best part was that my blood sugar was at 146 when I finished my run. Without a CGM I was very happy that my temp basal was working out so well. I quickly grabbed a quick sip of a Gatroade and a bit of a Power Bar and got ready for a bike ride. Being I on the bike never felt so good, I feel like the bike is my home. I love cruising around Westerly at 16mph and enjoying all of the towns history. My legs felt strong, I would've stayed on the bike all day if I could have, again I hadn't been on the bike so it would only be a short ten mile ride to get my feet wet. As great as the run and ride went I was still worried about my blood sugar, when I saw 97 after my bike ride I couldn't help but smile.
I have missed running outside and being on the bike. I have also missed the lower blood sugars that go with those exercises. My blood sugar has not gone above 190 today and that is because of working out outside. The gym is good but nothing like working out outside, I know that colder temperatures will come but I would really like to continue working out outside, it is crazy to think but the spring is right around the corner. I want to take the next step as a runner and a cyclist and to do that I need to suck it up and be outside doing my workouts.
