Although my work life is very crazy I still want to run or ride my bike at least five days a week. This makes life a lot tougher, doing so much staying hydrated is nearly impossible. I have also returned to taking less than 30 units of insulin per day. I will be sure to listen to my body, if I'm tired I will probably not ride or run, it is still very early in the summer and I have a lot of events in the fall.
I love the heat and the humidity, I love sweating, and I love to be active in the heat. Running a 5k with the temperature at 80 lets me know that I'm alive. My body goes to another level in the heat, I know that everyone competing is suffering but I feel that I'm the one that can take it to the next level. My body loves the heat, last night I ran my first mile in 6:50. When I saw my time for the first mile I was shocked, I quickly slowed down. The second mile cost me, I coasted until the 2 mile marker and then turned it on again. I would finish with a time of 23:12, not great but good considering the conditions. I have no idea how to run, I don't know pacing or anything like that. I'm happy though, my body feels great and I feel that I can score a top 100 finish in the ten mile race I have at the end of July.
