I had a very physically active day at work and was between 100 and 160 most of the day, i did have a couple of lows through out the day however. One of those lows was at 3pm, with the run three hours away I tried my best to have enough food to fix the low but not spike my blood sugar. I failed miserably, my blood sugar was at 292 when I tested at 510. The weird part was that I felt great, I had .8 of active insulin in my body but decided to take .5 to make sure my blood sugar wast to high while I ran.
The race went very well, I still don't believe I know how to properly run a 5K but I'm getting better. The highlight of night was being able to see the leader for the first mile. That means I may have started to fast but seeing the leader for the first mile gave me an extra rush. Miles two and three went well, pace wise I did slow down a bit in mile two but still felt strong. As I approached the finish I was happy to see the clock reading, 21:50, I sprinted to the finish and came in with a time of 21:58!! That time beat my old personal 5k mark by 4 seconds, I couldn't have been happier. When i saw that my blood sugar was at 118 and falling I was ecstatic. I could go enjoy my gatorade and power bar without having to worry about my blood sugar. A couple hours after the race my blood sugar is at 140, today was a good day. I wish my blood sugar was in an acceptable range pre race. With the way things turned out I don't think I should complain.
