Easy Run

Getting back in the routine

  • 5:14 am, BG: 139, Start run
    • 5:46 am, BG: 127, Mile 3.5, 2g carb
  • 6:05 am, BG: 89, End run
  • 6:25 am, BG: 186, 1.5 U Pre-bolus for breakfast
  • 6:35 am, BG: 100, 30 Minutes Post Workout

Since it’s now been a few weeks since our move, I realized I need to get back into a real routine and training schedule. I asked my coach* to write me a training plan so that I wouldn’t wake up each day wondering “What am I going to do for my workout?”. Last night I checked my plan and saw 5 miles, so today I did just that. The heat finally broke so I had beautiful weather for it and I went early enough that I even caught the sunrise.

My BG management was simple this morning. Run until I use the dawn phenomenon sugar dump and then have some carbs if needed. That happened around mile 3.5 today. I saw a drop from 140 to 127 in 5 minutes and knew I would need something to prevent a low. I also knew that I would be done running in about 15 mins, just about when the carbs would start to hit. I had two jelly beans to be on the safe side and kept moving. It worked, a few minutes after my run, I saw 78 with an arrow down. Normally, this would be cause for concern but I knew I had those jelly beans about to hit so I waited. My next BG was 86. Boom!

“Trust that what you know will happen, is going to happen!”

At that point, I correct and pre-bolused for breakfast because I don’t need to be trending up before breakfast and what fun is a run without a good post run meal? šŸ˜‰

*Yes, I mean Marty. šŸ™‚
