Barely a post. Notes to self.

Didn’t sleep a wink. Cross country starts today.

  • I put in a -50% basal segment for the two-hours block that includes the running and bicycling home parts of the day
  • and the sport-specific Tallygear anti-jiggle belt has a tube of Glucolift in it (probably should find a gel?)
  • and I made a fresh cartridge for the pump (irrelevant)
  • and the Dexcom’s got a spot-on (a lucky, bloody one even!) sensor
  • and the phones are all charged

    Much luck at XC or CC or Running Through The Woods Like A Lunatic, or whatever his school calls it. That’s a hard one to work out! We had a school in our circuit that had fun signs posted on the trees in the hilly woods. There was one passage through narrow trees that they dubbed “Fat Man’s Squeeze.” And people say CC isn’t fun!

    I feel like we live parallel lives albeit mine is in South Carolina. I have an 11 year old type 1 Celiac kid with a bent for skateboards and anything athletic….and a very funny wry sense of humor. I have a 13 year old son as well. I don’t sleep much either and I pour over Dexcom and Omnipod data trying to make some kind of halfway right decisions. I work on Paleo, then whole 30 is a thought (a passing one), then I go nuts trying to bake some gluten free random goodies. All this since March 2014. It’s so crazy. Thank you for your posts and your blog. Your thoughts make me laugh, think, sometimes feel sad and most of all it let’s me know I am not alone out here feeling like an alien in my world!

    Really!! You can’t just say he’s going out on a long run and never get back to us. Boy ok? How many gu packets did he go through? And is this still Whole 30 time? How do you deal with stress?

      Oh my gosh thank you for wondering and: it worked perfectly. He was like 90 – 100 – 90 – 100 – 90 -100…like a dream/kind of low/really fine. Then low later at home, around bedtime, so we can tweak that part. But still. Wow. *Much* better than being found flat on face in woods. I can’t seem to ever have faith that the post-exercise lows will ever arrive.
