Well I didn't run in the Santa Monica 10k last weekend. On a scale of one to ten, I'd say the whole week of training was about a two or three. I mean I got a lot in but not one time did I think "this was a good workout". I wanted to get in a long run on Saturday instead of the 10k but ended up only running ten and a half, my legs were incredibly sore after the run and throughout the day.
I’ve been experiencing high blood sugars after working out in the morning’s recently. It’s all been in the last 10-14 days and has never happened prior to this. I’ve heard/ read about diabetics getting spikes after working out but has never really happened to me and now it is, which seems really odd so I don’t really know what to do.
And when I say spikes I mean a 280-350 BS after 90 to 120 minutes, which I know is something going on in my body because I usually have Accelorade (21-25g) right after the run (or swim or bike) and then eat a meal after a stretch/ shower about another 45 minutes later. I cover these with normal insulin doses and still am having the spikes. It does mainly seem to be happening after runs.
Like I said this has never happened before and I’ve always been really active so I don’t know if this will randomly stop again or what. Also, nothing else has changed in my life to cause this. I’ve tried to think of every outside factor that could have been causing this and can’t think of anything.
Trying to look for an answer I found from other diabetics on the internet that a lot of insulin doses don't do as much within thirty minutes of working out, until the adrenaline and even the heart rate is completely calmed down. Maybe I've been covering insulin doses to close to the workout recently? Who knows, I know I will figure it out and everything will work out, just the sooner, the better.
