Congrats Dann! That is really impressive. I hope that I can figure out how to better manage my BG over the long haul for endurance races. It's been tough.
@Med your Bonaire trip sounds great! I'd like to go there. I'm looking forward to doing some diving again. It's been over 3years. I may need a refresher dive.
Sounds like you had an amazing run Dann. Always tricky when BS goes 180-200. too high but not high enough to do anything about about it (at least for me). Maybe one day I'll run a 50K. I'm not there yet, enjoying marathons.
Awesome job Dann! That is something to be proud of! We had the awards banquet of the local running series last night. I was one of only 7 people to finish all of the races in the trail running series. I also finished 4th in my age group for the trail races, which I was pretty happy with. There was normally 10-11 racers in my class per race.
Brian - Bonaire was amazing! It was just a group of friends diving from the shore, but of the six of us one is a dive instructor and one a divemaster with two of us well on our way to rescue diver. The great thing about Bonaire is 95% of the boat dives are easily accessible from the shore. This was actually my first trip since diagnosis, but my BGL was great. I made sure that I was 160-180 before going down and never went below 78.
Dann - Awesome job!
Great job!! Chicken broth also sounds like a great idea! I felt like garbage for about 12-13 miles and now that you mention it, chicken broth would have helped. I'll have to figure out a plan for that next time!!
Ran a 50k trail run yesterday, it was tough course but my BS was 119 when I finished (can't be much better than that), I checked at mile 22 it was 195--kind of worried me but I left it alone (glad I did) I had a GU every 45, endurolytes every 1:15(it was a warm day) and 5 Cliff shot bloks along the way, also a little chicken broth at mile 22, I had a bad calf cramp at my last years 50k -- No cramps this year, actually felt better the last 10 miles than I did the mid 10 miles (weird). Thought I'd share my experience :)
Diving definitely uses different muscles. Preparing for a dive can also be tricky. Nothing like having a low 60ft beneath the surface. How was Bonaire? Did you go with a dive master or did you just dive from the beach? Ever have trouble during a dive?
Great job Brian!
Surfing and diving sounds like a great break, but having just returned from a dive trip in Bonaire I'll warn you - I forgot how diving uses VERY different muscles!
@Brian - nice bib collection, and only one years worth.
Hi Brian, Congrats on the NYC Marathon finish. Interesting to hear how the salt helped. I will try that on my next long run. Keep up the good work.
