As I began my run I felt good, I kept telling myself hold back, I have a history of starting to fast and would much rather run faster later in my runs. As you can see below I started out to fast, I would like to start around a nine minute pace. I'm thinking that after this weekends race I should try not holding back for a five mile run and see what happens. I have this odd feeling that I may be able to run a little faster than I think.
As the run went on I felt great but as I peaked at Easy Ed around mile three it said that my blood sugar was at 60. I laughed and kept running, I thought to myself I was almost 180 when I started no chance I'm at 60, plus I felt great. Mentally however seeing that number messed me up, I decided to eat a few glucose tabs which wouldn't do anything but they did make me relax. As I finished up my run I felt good but not to strong, I had a good kick but not the kick I wanted. I sat down at the playground and waited for Leanne, Care Bear and Sharky. Easy Ed read 55 now but again I felt great. I decided to see how I felt as time went on and that 55 was not correct. I ran around with Care Bear and had no problems. When I arrived home just before 5:30 I tested and my blood sugar was 110.
I don't encourage anyone to ignore their CGM while working out but I believe that it is important to know how you are when you are low or high so that if your CGM is off you know what to do. Obviously my CGM is a bit off today, it said that I was at 344 a few minutes ago and I was at 143. Technology is great but you have to know yourself, if you don't you rely on the technology which is not perfect and can make mistakes.
