That means two things, I need to have perfect control of my diabetes and I need to find the time for thirteen mile runs on Saturday and Sunday. Sometimes those runs won't start until 6pm other days they'll be run at 5am, it all depends on my schedule and when I will be able to run. That is why the diabetes management is so important, somedays I may think I don't have the time to run but something will change and I will have a couple hours to run. If my blood sugar is consistently low or high being able to run at random times will not be possible.
To make it a little easier to manage my blood sugars I have stocked up on sensors for my CGM and have hopefully figured out the problem with my cgm. I have also tweaked my diet just a little bit for better blood sugar management. Tonight will be the first odd time run, once the kids are in bed I will be heading out the door with my headlamp on and getting a nice five mile run. That means I have to juggle my dinner bolus, I have to take just enough insulin so that I'm not out of range before my run. If my blood sugar is too low or high it will be putting my run in jeopardy. The good news is that I have plenty of experience on the bike when it comes to managing blood sugar and bolus rates. As always I'm excited for the challenge and can't wait to be out on the roads this evening.
