Running Log

Monday, November 11th:

Ran: 3.0 miles, time: 32:22, pace: 10’47″/mile

Saturday, November 9th:
Before run: 10:28AM, BG: 172
After run: 11:28AM, BG: 294
Ran: 1.8 miles, time: 21:12, pace: 11’45″/mile
Notes: Was shocked by how high my blood sugar was after run-think I had a best infusion set, hill run, was supposed to do a 6 mile run but got discouraged and probably a good thing since I was so high.


Thursday, November 7th:
Before run: 8:55AM, BG: 125
After run: 9:37AM, BG: 193
Ran: 1.0 mile, time: 11:39, pace: 11’32″/mile

Wednesday, November 6th:
Before run: 2:56PM, BG: 112
After run: 3:19PM, BG: 127
Ran: 4.0 miles, time: 45:21, pace: 11’20″/mile

11:19AM, BG: 80, ate 4 tootsie roll fruit flavor pieces ~20 carbs
After run: 11:51AM, BG: 147 
Ran: 2.0 miles, time: 21:25, pace: 10’41″/mile
Notes: Felt great during this run but was really worried about my blood sugar so ran 2 miles instead of 3.  CGM said I was below 40 mg/dL by the time I finished the run but was actually a lot higher and ended up getting even higher as the day wore on.


Saturday, November 2nd:
Woke up: 6:02AM, BG: 148, ate grapes~25 carbs, bolused 2.5 instead of 3.6 for carbs and didn’t bolus for high
Before run: 7:18AM, BG: 124, ate fruit snacks
7:56AM, BG: 84
8:31AM, BG: 98
9:02AM, BG: 97 
After run: 10:07AM, BG: 120 
Ran: 11.5 miles, time: 2:19:27, pace: 12’08″/mile
Notes: Tummy got upset around mile 2 and couldn’t get to a bathroom until mile 5 so I ended up walking a little bit. After bathroom break, I felt great until heavy legs took over around mile 10.  Ate 3 packs of fruit snacks throughout run.  Did a temp basal of 50% at 6:45AM and at mile 7 suspended pump until mile 10.


Thursday, October 31st:
Before run: 8:32AM, BG: 70, ate fruit snacks ~15 carbs
8:51AM, BG: 67, ate a spoon of frosting ~8 carbs
9:06AM, BG: 120 
After run: 9:55AM, BG: 133 
Ran: 3.0 miles, time: 35:49, pace: 11’55″/mile

Wednesday, October 30th:
Before run: 9:58AM, BG: 165
During run: 10:22AM, BG: 133
10:41AM, BG: 106, ate fruit snacks ~9 carbs
After run: 11:26AM, BG: 99
Ran: 6.0 miles, time: 1:14:35, pace: 12’26″/mile
Notes: Again, this was a tough run.  Not feeling as motivated as previous 6 mile run.  Also, I ate a PowerBar for the first time ever before this run.  I ate it about 30 minutes before the run, which was the reason my BG was higher when starting the run and likely why I dropped-insulin still working.  I only bolused for half of the Power Bar.


Tuesday, October 29th:
Before run: 9:46AM, BG: 131
After run: 10:39AM, BG: 149
Ran: 3.0 miles, time: 38:41, pace: 12’52″/mile
Notes: Haven’t ran since last Tuesday because was dealing with depression/diabetes burnout and ended up taking more time off than I realized.  The run wasn’t very good and it was tougher than others, I guess from taking time off last week and doing a small taper the week before.

After run: 12:15PM, BG: 98

Thursday, March 14th, 2013:
Lunch: 2:49 PM Blood sugar: 136
Ate Weight Watchers Baked Ziti, 44 carbs, 4.5 units of insulin (bolus wizard wanted me to use 5.4 units but I don’t think my ratios are correct-need to test)

Ate breakfast: 2 waffles, 28 carbs, 3.5 units
3 hours after race (and 2 hours after eating): 11:30 AM Blood sugar: 287 (wtf?? breakfast and not bolusing enough for high earlier?)
Ran: 3.94 miles, time: 46:41, pace: 11:50/mile (with stop to test b.s.)
Note: was nervous about running so far so possible adrenaline kicked in a little to make my blood sugar high? But was also nervous I had a false high do to adrenaline so didn’t bolus enough to bring my b.s. down

One of the reasons I decided to start a blog was to connect with other T1D and it’s already paying off.  Scott Johnson from www.scottsdiabetes.com referred me to Jeff Mather’s blog: http://jeffmatherphotography.com/dispatches/.  Scott was referring me to his website in response to my article on my CGM because Jeff has some good CGM tips.  However, I explored his website a little bit and found that he has an exercise data page.  I have decided to also include an exercise log and since I am new to running, I am hoping this will help me to learn how to control my blood sugars during longer runs.  Thanks Scott and Jeff!

First run on my exercise log starting tomorrow-3 miles!

  1. That’s interesting as a result because exercising with no background insulin CAN push your bs up very high. I have had that experience. My doctor just acknowledged it and said not to stop exercising because of it! Presumably on this occasion you still had enough in your body to cope with the breakfast and the run.

  2. Hi Ruth! Yes, I have found that working out causes my blood sugar to drop fairly low, that’s why on this day, I didn’t put insulin in for my breakfast because it wasn’t enough carbs to offset my long run. I have only seen my blood sugar go high during a run if I have a lot of adrenaline, like on the first day of my 10k training program. I was so nervous about running with others and nervous about the training that my adrenaline was pumping into overdrive and as a result, my bs went up a lot. However, I have always heard you shouldn’t exercise when your blood sugar is high. Over 250 mg/dL I have heard runs a risk of ketoacidosis, so be careful if your blood sugar is too high before a run!
