Not even five miles in to my ride and I had to pullover and eat. I can't really do that in two weeks. After I ate and got my blood sugar backup I stayed close to where I parked. I did not want to be thirty miles out and get low again. I had plenty of supplies if I did get low but I didnt want to risk it. I rode forty miles and did a lot of hills, when the blood sugar was over one hundred I rode great, I had my cocky no one could beat me attitude. When I got below 100, that worn out tired feeling came back.
Luckily I have two weeks to figure out what will work diabetes wise. I' very confident that I will get this problem solved by the end of this week. It has taken two years for me to get to a point where I feel confident I can race with my diabetes. I don't want to back out of this race because I can't keep my blood sugar above 100. If that happens then the dream of an endurance 200 mile race in November will not happen. I have two weeks to figure out my diabetes and cycling, if I don't I will become unglued. No pressure!!!
