I hate to toot my own horn but I very rarely have any soreness in my legs during or after a workout. I don't know why but ever since I was a kid my legs don't get sore, this morning my trainer decided to put me through a very intense endurance workout. With fifteen minutes left I felt very thirsty, I figured it was the workout, I downed some Gatorade and headed off to my last exercise. I would have 3 sets of 1 minute on Jacobs Ladder and 3 sets of 20 barbell curls. Going in to the last set of curls my left quad was very sore, I was shocked but still not feeling like myself. I decided to have my post workout snack and then test when I got home. Driving home I could feel that odd dryness in my nose which means I'm very high (over 300). I was at 462 when I got home!!! (This article explains why working out with such a high blood sugar is a terrible idea)
The only reason for this could be a faulty insulin pump site, as I took off my old site I could see a bruise and a bunch of insulin had backed up in the delivery tube. I calmly changed the site and then ran and grabbed my humalog pen and took 12 units of insulin. I'm happy that my trainer didn't win and that my legs are fine, I'm pissed that I didn't change my site sooner. Nothing is more upsetting than have a feeling the site was going bad and putting off changing it until later. A couple hours later everything got back to normal but again I'm pissed that I had a feeling and didn't follow through on it. Tomorrow as I head to the gym on my own I will take out that anger on myself. I have to keep reminding myself that these things happen, my blood sugar wasn't this high for days, it will be ok. Listening to myself will be a lot tougher however, tomorrow is a new day and I can't wait for it.
