This post is in support of the 4th Annual D-Blog Day. My Blog is dedicated to my trials and tribulations of running and being Type 1 Diabetic. I started it just recently, but have enjoyed telling my story – to myself and any body else that might stop by.
I ran my second 10K this past Saturday. I ran it in 57:12 (officially, 56:59 by my watch!). I felt good during the run despite another huge spike to 280 just before the start. I think that nerves/stress is causing my numbers to be higher just before a race. I bolused half of the normal correction, ate 19 g of carbs before the start and had a GU gel half way through the race along with setting my basal to 20% for an hour before and during the run. I was at 89 after the race, so I did pretty well.
Happy D-Blog Day!
