Once everything is finally set I can get on the bike and enjoy the 40 mile ride I have planned. The crazy part is that being on the bike is the easy part when it comes to blood sugar management, just eat and drink every 15 minutes and everything should be perfect. That isn't always the case but a majority of the time it is smooth sailing. Yesterday was one of the best days I've had on the bike in sometime, the crazy me came back. I was enjoying racing cars up hills in our small tourist beach town. I loved being in traffic sprinting to stay around 25mph to stay with traffic as I went through downtown. Each and every part of the ride was perfect. The best part was that I took it all in, the high heart rate, the sounds and the sights. When I can train with a smile on my face it is a great day!!
Coming home covered with sweat and exhausted was not the end of the ride diabetes wise. Although my blood sugar was in range I would still closely monitor my blood to make sure it stayed in range as my body came down from a tough training ride. When it all goes well there is no better feeling!! As always if you put in the work and the effort the results will follow!!
