All of this might sound boring but it is testing me blood sugar wise. After two months of not doing much being on my feet for eight hours is different and my blood sugar is fluctuating. I’m doing a much better job of not over reacting to blood sugars that get close to going out of my set range. This means not taking insulin prematurely or getting juice prematurely. This is my biggest challenge and one that I have been facing for years. In order to be better as an athlete and as a person living with diabetes I have to trust myself more and know that my blood sugars will not go way above or below my set range.
Each week I will be improving and trying to run. It will be a long road but thanks to a great coach I have been building my strength and doing a lot of body weight exercises. I will be back on the trails and will be completing a 50k or 50miler before the end of the year. I can see my goals but it’s a long road and I need to stay disciplined.
