I know that normally my drives to Maine happen in the winter, but they can be just as fun in the summer (even if all my cousins are asleep by the time I get there). I woke up early on Saturday to go for a 5(!) mile run. (More on why I’m running so much to come in a later post.) At one point while I was running, Dexcom told me I was around 260, which made me a little nervous, but I just kept running. I met my Dad with gatorade at 3 miles, and I was a little nervous, but chugged anyways because it was hot and I was thirsty. It worked well because I had double down arrows as soon as I started up again. This was a beautiful view to finish with.
My cousin picked me up from there and off we went to the river. I normally need a +50% basal for an hour after I run, but I left my basal as is because we were going to be kayaking for 2 hours. Diabetes seemed to enjoy this decision.
We were thinking about going zip-lining after, but instead we decided on swimming. Then came a spaghetti dinner, finished off with s’mores. Later that night, I was low. I know it was from being so active during the day, but I still didn’t expect it.
On Sunday, I conquered my fear of heights and went ziplining. I know this may not seem like a huge deal to some, but I am terrified of heights. The people starting & catching up had to keep telling me to breathe. It still didn’t help. But, I DID IT! I was also nervous about my pump slipping out of my pocket while I was flying downhill. So I wrapped it around the waistband of my underwear as many times as it would, and then shoved it back in my pocket. I had no problem with my pump flying more than it was with me!
I realize this is a little late in the week for weekend recap, but I hope you all had just as great of a weekend!
