I’m tired. I’m tired physically and mentally.
I’m discouraged. I’m second guessing myself about being able to run a marathon next month.
This past weekend’s run has been weighing on me and my ability to complete the marathon in my goal time. Also, my body is tired.
I had my Monday RealRyder/TRX class this morning. I felt off my game. I felt slow and weak. I tried to fight through it, but could tell I was not performing my best.
I also fought all day with low blood sugars. It seemed like every time I checked it, it was low. It was low when I woke up, at lunch, immediately after lunch, mid-afternoon, and before dinner. It was only above 100 3 times today and every other time I checked it was below 80.
I did have my appointment with my Endocrinologist today. We made some adjustments to my basal rate on my pump to take care of the lows I’ve been having in the middle of the night and when I wake up. We also decided on some things to do before and while I run to help with the lows during my runs.
I know this is just a funk I’m in, but I’m really discouraged right now. I’ll get through it, but I hope it happens sooner than later.
I have 5 miles on the schedule for tomorrow and I really don’t want to run it. I’m hoping I wake up and feel better. I am going to sleep a little later than normal. Maybe that will help.
