wasn't totally sold that the rain would last that long so I hesitated on giving
myself more insulin. After 10am however the rain had stopped and my blood sugar began to work its way back down. As the day went on my focus went from my blood sugar to the bike. I could not wait for the day to end so I could jump on my bike and just ride. I have not been on the bike in a week, to put that in normal terms imagine going a week without your morning coffee. It's not fun and you miss it tremendously.
Around 1:30pm I setup the pump for my bike ride that would begin around 4pm if all went right. As I left work my pump read 112, I still don't get how with no insulin going in how my blood sugar does not rise. I was not very active in that period. When I arrived home my blood sugar was at 98, I quickly poured some orange juice and grabbed a bowl of Kix. While I was eating my Kix I was wondering where all the fun shapes and marshmellows were. (Sad attempt at humor but enjoy the Kix commercial) Just before 4:30 I was ready to go, I rode a quick twenty miles I just wanted the body to get familiar with the bike again. As I rode I was so happy to be back on the bike. It's crazy how much I have fallen in love with cycling. My body felt good but my legs were still tired from the Tough Mudder. I have a 100 mile Gran Fondo a week from Sunday, I expect to win the green or polka dot jersey, my legs need to come back very quickly. Post ride everything went well blood sugar wise, I took eight units after my ride and was around 100 at when I ate my dinner. It's nice having that part of the diabetes and cycling under control. I can't wait to get up around 5am and get back on the bike!!!
