My first session was a three mile run at 530 this morning. I firmly believe that any workout outside before or during the sunrise makes for a great day. When I workout at 5am I have nothing on my mind but the exercise that I'm doing, I love working out later in the day but all of my focus is not on my exercise if I'm working out after work. This morning I was very happy with my 145 blood sugar at 5am, I felt that I could go for my run and get back home to have breakfast before my blood sugar dipped to low. As I finished up my run my blood sugar had dipped to 78, I took my two units of insulin and had my bowl of cereal. Other than another odd cramp on the inside of my right calf I couldn't ask for a better morning.
The afternoon session was a little bit tougher. I waited until 1:30 to set my temp basal for the bike ride I had planned for after work. At 4pm when my blood sugar was at 68 I knew that I had waited to long to set my temp basal. A 246 blood sugar at lunch played a big part in this low as well, my afternoon was nothing special until I got on the bike for my ride. As my blood sugar hit 180 at 435 I jumped on my bike and held my own little time trial. I would sprint eight miles on my bike to watch some of the high school baseball game (I miss my basketball student athletes and wanted to see them) and then do the same on the way home. A fierce bone chilling head wind gave me a time of 26 minutes to the game. The ride home on the same route only took 23 minutes with a chilling tailwind.
All day my Dexcom was giving me odd readings. I was 246 at lunch as my Dexcom read 170, I was at 92 when I got to the ball field, my Dexcom read 55. Finally the picture above shows the latest Dexcom faux pas, I'm tempted to change the Dexcom site but I believe the Dexcom will bounce back and be acting normal at 5am tomorrow when I get ready for my morning run.
