I don’t plan on my daily exercise to be a post able item. However since today an oddity happened I thought why not. Started with a blood sugar of 199 at 3:25. Started exercising around 4. I ran did one circuit on the weights and then ran 2.75 miles on the elliptical trainer in 30 minutes. Checked my blood sugars and they were 157. Did good today.

After finishing up on the elliptical trainer I turned around and there was one of the sailors who had been on one of the exercise bikes, out cold in the middle of the floor.  The sailors are required to work out for an hour a couple of times a week I guess and today was one of those days. It’s also 80+ degrees out, and probably a touch higher than that in the gym. We woke him up, sat him down and got some water in him and he started making sense again. He was pretty out of it for a bit there. You could see where he had been sweating because his shirt was still sweaty, but his head was pretty much dry. He’d stopped sweating. I think he just overheated and dehydrated. Seems to be fine now. A handful of the other sailors are watching over him at this point.

Crazy times.

Well, I took a two week hiatus on the exercise routine and now I’m paying the price.

Weight. 207. Too much of the good stuff. (-;

I started with a couple of rounds on the weight machines to warm up and then ran 2.5 miles on the elipticle trainer in roughly 30 minutes. Started with a blood sugar of 222 at 3:37 pm so I took my pumps recommended insulin dose of 2.9 units of insulin and ended with a blood sugar of 49 at 4:42 pm. Oops. 3 sugar tablets later and I’m good to go. I need to work on the 45+ minute exercise routines and my blood sugars. Can’t keep dropping like this or it’s a tad on the bad side.

The run felt really good today. I made it over the hump and just kind of putted along. Kept the heart rate between 145 and 155 for most of the way. If I can keep this up I might actually get back into shape. Feels good now, wonder what the morning will feel like?
