Couch to 5K Challenge Day 10: [Insert something clever here]


It’s Friday. My brain is fried. As much as I’d like to think of something clever to say or a question I have to ask about running/jogging/life, I can’t think of anything. So I’m drinking a cup of coffee instead.

At least I finished out another week!

[Yesterday’s] Workout

Pre-workout blood sugar: 194 mg/dl (This is what happens when I decrease my basal insulin by 50% and then eat a cookie.)

The workout: Same as Tuesday–4 minute warm-up. Two repetitions of the following: 1:30 minutes jogging followed by 1:30 minutes walking and then 3:00 minutes jogging followed by 3:00 walking. 5 minute cool-down.

Then I walked around the track with my boyfriend for an hour.

Post-workout blood sugar: 77 mg/dl

Post-workout snack: Bowl of oatmeal with peanut-butter accompanied by a cup of hot tea with lemon. Yummy.

Post-workout activity: Bed



About Nel

As a graduate education student, I've come to the conclusion that teaching requires an addiction to caffeine. My favorite caffeinated beverages are coffee, tea, and diet Coke. And when I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in January 2012, I also came to the conclusion that living requires insulin. I blog about my busy life juggling graduate education courses, a teaching assistantship in my University's English department, and my recent type 1 diabetes diagnosis the The Clumsy Juggler. I do not live in New York City.
