This morning I woke up before my alarm so Marty and I had a pre-run cup of coffee and watched the sun come up while I set my temp basal. I didn’t have any other symptoms of being sick yesterday after my stomach settled down so I decided to attempt my long run again. Marty ran the first 3 miles with me and then I finished the last 7 solo. It was a beautiful morning with perfect weather and I saw nine deer in the woods throughout the run and normally I miss them because I usually run with my head down. My feet felt great today but my legs felt a bit heavy and slow. I guess that’s what happens when there are #NoDaysOff!

BGs were great again during my run today! I had a cheesy everything bagel right before heading out the door. This was definitely an experiment. I wasn’t sure how it would sit in my stomach and I wasn’t sure about the timing for my BGs. The carbs hit pretty quick with my reduced basal and the fat/protein lasted well past my run. I may have to try this again on a longer run and skip the cereal to see what that does. After my run I changed into dry clothes and did the upper body strength workout that my sweetheart designed. I made the mistake of mentioning that “I haven’t been lifting enough since the gyms closed” a few days ago so he got to work thinking of ways to make me regret saying that out loud. I have a love/hate relationship with his workouts!

After my strength session, my BGs were rising, Miles was antsy and I was starving so, naturally, we went for a quick walk to help the insulin along. He was a happy pup and not long after we got back, I was ready to eat. The breakfast caught my BGs from dropping lower than 70 and then I had a nice steady line hanging in the 80-90 range. This is what you call a happy diabetic!
