It was also very interesting and full of mystery and a whole bunch of numbers that continue to be unclear. The run though… that was excellent.
Starting BG: 138. Ending BG: 140. That part looks like there’s no mystery at all, but there is, according to my Libre. My Libre showed me starting at a 160 and then, all of a sudden, spiking 3 miles in. It showed me at a 214. When I got off the treadmill and tested, it was still at a 196, and I expected to see a BG of maybe 185 or so (thinking that would be that… muscle… glygocen-o-whatever that you mentioned). My finger stick, however, was 140. My Libre seems to be really good about tracking the rise and fall, but I honestly don’t know if it ever even happened. So that’s the mystery.
I was impressed with the workout only because I thought you had made a mistake— and meant 1/4 mile @ 8.0. I didn’t think your stuff was going to add up. Anyway, I figured I would do half of it, and if it looked like it was going to be really short in distance, I’d make up for it. It was 4.5 miles almost on the nose. Impressive . So I did it as you gave it. I did a half mile warm up, repeated 1 min @ 7.5, 1 min @ 8.0, and 1 min @ 8.3 five times, and then did a half mile cool down. RPE was maybe 6-7 for the first 3 sets and then 7 for the last 2. This workout actually felt much easier than Tuesday’s because of how it was broken up. My brain hates monotony, and one mile at the exact same pace is torturous. Today was fun.
Now about my nighttime basal… do I need to adjust anything?? I did 7 instead of 8 for my afternoon dose and did 17 instead of 19 this morning. I did stay a little higher all morning as a result, but it wasn’t problematic.
