Gym: 6/21

I had planned to do my 4 miles after yoga Thursday night last week. 

That planned failed. 

Just as I dropped all my stuff and started up the treadmill I got the feeling that I should do a blood test.  

113 – perfect!

Just not for doing a run when my insulin was still going through it’s 2 hour peak. 

But since I already started the treadmill I decided I was going to knock out (a slow) one mile. 

And then I packed it up and went home. 

Packing up did not include glucose tablets or a wallet … if it had I would have fueled or run into the CVS near by  – I was determined to get my run. So much so that I debated running home, fueling up with some chomps, waiting out the 2 hour peak and going back for the remaining 3 miles. Then I sat down when I got to the apartment and that whole idea vanished – I was in for the night. 

So my first run cut short from blood-sugars …. I’m sure there will be plenty more runs thrown off.
