"Brian: I find that doing a run/walk interval keeps my BG from crashing hard. I've done half-marathons at a 3 minute/30 second interval, and although it does lower my BG, the rest breaks from walking seem to keep things more in line. As Mr.…"
"Brian, I run and I am a pump user. Couple things that currently works for me. 1. If I am going for a run, I normally try to have my sugars on the high side 170-200, specially if I am doing long runs. 2. Always carry a energy gel even if I do not…"
"Brian I am not on a pump but also started having issues. I now am on the Banana run. I eat one just before I run I find that I am then fine for the duration of the run up to 15km. After that it is time for another banana"
"Today was the day that extra weight was added to the pack. I have forgotten the pains of pack running. Lucky my core muscles are a lot stronger to start off with. My hip muscles are going to take a while to get use to the pack. It seems that the…"
"The last few days have been good. Today the start of wearing the pack on the back. Going to start off with 5kg in the pack and then add 1kg every week. I expect to be under 6kg on race day but have learnt I always seem to be more so will rather…"
"Well another one of those days. Must have got to about 5km and did not feel to good. Drank more water and said it must be the heat toaday as it was very hot in the sun 50C +. Started to feel even worse and thought this is realy strange. Slowed the…"
"Well received the confirmation for the 2 day trail race. Rather expensive at 200 dollars but then it does include 2 x breakfast's and tent so not that bad. Just motivates one to ensure you enjoy it to the max. No PB race this. Will soak up the…"
i wouldn't call myself quite a runner-- i'm really slow! but it's been strangely rewarding to train for this half marathon-- it's the applefest in hollis, nh! tomorrow i run 12, and then i am basically going to taper down until the big day!
it's nice to meet someone else who was recently diagnosed... i have just celebrated my 2nd diabetes birthday! it's been quite the learning curve. how are you doing? your a1c is awesome... if only mine could get into the 5s!
I can't believe you were diagnosed in Jan and your A1C is already 5..... what was it at diagnosis? Mine was over 12 and it took several months to get below 7. Sorry about your dad. I think it must be a completely different experience to be diagnosed in 07 - my endo is already talking about a pump running off of a continuous blood glucose monitor. I only know one other diabetic (acquaintance, really) and it is strange - but this site helps a lot.
