After returning to my usual workout schedule yesterday my body is already starting to adjust. My blood sugars have been a little lower than I would like all day long. I didn't have any blood sugars below 80 but my blood sugar was low enough that I couldn't do any physical activity without having to have a snack before hand. I began to plan for my run around 2:30 this afternoon, a bowl of cereal without taking any insulin was the meal of choice. At 3:45 my blood sugar was at 182 and I felt good going for my run around 430. My run went very well, my body felt strong after being on the bike yesterday. The only negative from the run was seeing a real runner a mile from the end of my run. Being the competitive person that I am I did my best to keep pace with him, I'm happy to say that I was able to stay with him but my blood sugar paid the price. The last mile was completed in seven minutes, I was at an eight minute pace until then. When I arrived home I felt ok but tested to see how I should cover my post run snack. When I saw 60 I was shocked, I shouldn't have tried to keep up with that guy!!!
My snack would quickly bring my blood sugar back to normal. In the coming days it will be an interesting battle to try and balance my blood sugars, work and exercise. But as always I love the challenge and will be excited to see what I learn.
