Okay. I was back up and at it today but with pretty mixed results. I got most of it done though, so there’s that. And didn’t end up back in the ER which was also a victory.
The run was a 1.5 mile warm up, 32 minutes at 7.5 (8 min miles), and a 1.5 mile cool down for a total of 7 miles. I won’t bother with the hospital details, but I’ll say Friday was not a diabetes thing… but was something else crazy and scary enough that I’ve been careful since getting out. Wasn’t sure I could do today’s run but really wanted to, so that’s probably how I came to be doing most of it—but then stopping abruptly when I started feeling bad.
No ZB today because I wasn’t sure when I was going to start. And I had a coffee… because I didn’t think I could do this workout, on this particular day, without it. I figured the lack of ZB might offset the coffee rise if I got started right away—and that seemed to be the way it went.
Starting BG: 113
Mi 1: 115
Mi 2: 102
Mi 3: 99
Mi 4: 121
*Huma (not feeling too hot and wanted the caffeine)
Mi 5: 136… Had to stop the treadmill
*8 min break (lots of stuff going on that felt wrong)
…Then feeling better so
Mi 5.1: 115…really slow jog
(G6 showing a 155 two arrows up so did a .2 unit bolus because I was anticipating a rise—but then retested and came up with 114)
Mi 6: 82 (because I bolused unnecessarily)
Mi 6.5: 77
And blah. Really severe blah. I was glad I got back on and jogged for a bit only because I didn’t want to end it at that 8 min pace, but it just never felt okay. I was working hard from the first mile, and tried as I might to not think numbers, they wouldn’t leave me alone. Lots of hard physical stuff this weekend and lots of meds, and I think my body was just a little beaten up.
So I don’t want to miss tomorrow, but maybe I can do it at a slightly slower pace? And then if I feel better than expected, I could always pick it up?
