When I Manage This 5k…
…I’m hoping it will show that perfectionism is an enemy for most of us, especially people with Type 1 Diabetes!
(Notice I used when and not if… Adopting a positive mindset seems the only way to go here!)
I was planning to go for a run again today, a whole week after my last run.. not great at all (is what somebody not being kind to themselves would say); but when I sat down to test after getting home from work… a blood sugar of 3.3!
Again, could I go for a run tonight? Probably. Should I? Maybe… maybe not….
But I am going to not take the risk. I’m aiming for a 5k, not a marathon. Flu jabs are once a year, my hypos are not overly regular.. so the chances of being kept out for a week again any time soon? Quite small.
I’m being honest with this blog; hopefully showing that perfection isn’t necessary. Don’t beat yourself up, just be better tomorrow.
