Just before lunch I tested and was at 151 with the Dexcom reading 229. I made my lunch and hoped to get to the gym around 2pm after doing some work around the house. Again my blood sugar shot back up to 250 which would mean more insulin and no trip to the gym. By this time I had enough and was pissed that my blood sugar was still above 225, I took another four units of insulin hoping that would fix everything. As you can see things have returned to normal this evening, I have been hovering around 75 for a couple of hours.
Before a busy training/race weekend the last thing I wanted was to have crazy blood sugars. Tomorrow brings with it a 3 mile training run around 9 followed by a thirty mile bike ride. I also have a 5k race in North Kingstown on Sunday morning. With such crazy numbers today I'm a little nervous about tomorrows training and how my blood sugar will be. No matter what I will be running and riding tomorrow, I have a new Novo Nordisk kit I need to break in!!! The best part about tomorrow is that a good day blood sugar wise will give me the confidence to race well on Sunday. If all goes according to plan I believe a top 100 finish in the 5k is a good possibility.
