It feels like a week ago that I ran, but it was only about 12 hours ago…
Okay. Today I was supposed to do 5 miles at 7.0, and I did that. It was a great run— and I mean great. Yesterday I was worried a little about my hip/glute, but today there wasn’t even a whisper from it. I started the run feeling good and strong, and I never felt anything but. So that was happy-making stuff.
About my BG… Also very happy with that. I did drop more than I would’ve liked, but I had a gut feeling it was going to happen and decided I could wait on the carbs anyway. So it ended fine, but I think I could tighten it up a little next time.
I was planning for a noon run, so I had my last food bolus at 8:30 this morning. Basal-IQ did suspend for a little bit, and I saw a bit of a rise at 11:20 that caught me off guard. I was at a 163, and I really didn’t want to go any higher. I decided to try a half unit bolus, just to blunt it, and to leave on my basal until I got closer to the run. At 11:30 I was a 170, but I was already in the 130s twenty minutes later. I suspended my basal at that time.
Starting BG: 117
Mile 1: 112
Mile 2: 96 (my instinct was to do the carbs now, but I chose to wait)
Mile 2.85: 70
*Huma gel and .35 unit bolus
Mile 3.85: 62
Mile 4.5: 64
Mile 5: 65
RPE: 5.5-6 for the majority. I think I got up to maybe 6.5 in the last 3/4 mile or so.
Really enjoyed today’s run. It felt clean. Plenty of energy, plenty of strength, plenty of good music.
