On today’s training plan I had an 8 mile easy run, the last “long” run before race day! When I woke up, around 6:00 am, my BG was 136. Without doing anything, it had dropped to 112 before my run, so I had about 3 TBSP of creamy peanut butter before running. Enough carbs to raise my BG for the run, and healthy fat to prevent sudden spikes/drops and pretty easy on my stomach. It worked well, I carried gummies for emergency carbs but didn’t need them. 78 was the lowest reading this morning. 🙂
The run itself was cold and beautiful! High 20 to low 30 degrees clear and sunny on the trail. A little icy and muddy and completely peaceful. So much better than a crowded Saturday morning gym!
