Try half an hour of jogging followed by ten minutes of swimming.

You wouldn’t think this would be that bad – I mean, there’s a 5 min warmup and cooldown attached to that half hour, so it’s really only twenty minutes of jogging, and the swimming is only ten minutes – but, but… I only managed four laps before I started seriously worrying about my sugar. It’s been so long since I swam laps that I forgot what an incredibly intense exercise this is. I figured, hey, if I can jog, I can do anything!

Oh no it ain’t so.

Turned out my sugar was fine at a respectable 148 after exercise. I had plenty of wiggle room to finish out my set.

This week is mainly a fitness test week for me. How much can I do, how hard can I work, etc. I think I’ll be able to knock out the swimming part much more easily next time, knowing that my sugar is on track.

Next week, the miles start counting toward Lothlorien.
