Running In Cleveland

Not Walking in Memphis… and I sure as heck have lapsed on Running in Phoenix, but today my shoes hit the pavement in Cleveland. I am here all week as my organization is running their annual conference. I was pooped from the travel yesterday, the time change, but it is time to stop making excuses and get out there more than once every 2 weeks or so.

So I did a slow 30 minutes, just around the University Circle area, just taking a right here, a left there, enjoying some new and unknown scenery.

I am also about 4 weeks into my insulin pump routine, still getting adjusted (it goes whereever I go). My sugars were super out of whack all day yesterday, and I chalked it up to travel, but when I woke up still high I decided that maybe my last infusion set change the morning I left was not smooth (it did not go right in on the first attempt). Sure enough, the little tube was crimped, so I was not getting any insulin over the last 18 hours or so.

The hardest part is getting the meal estimates right, and telling myself to pass on those hefty seconds. The first 2 weeks I had the lowers consistent numbers eveer, nothing higher than 130, but I’ve been bopping a bit up and down since, much because of instable routines.

But so far, no problem at all running while hooked on the pump.
