Running Home From Work

I decided to do something very last minute today:

For whatever reason I decided it would be a GREAT idea to run home from work this morning, and packed my running gear into my bag.

Now, on the bright side I got a run in, and like some kind of time management ninja actually increased the time I got to spend with my family as it was quicker than walking home. Also, I probably ran quicker than I have done on any training run so far as I looked absolutely ridiculous running home with my non running trainers in my hand!

Anyway, reminding myself to be kind to myself and that every run with type 1 diabetes is trial and error I am not going to beat myself up. I just need to plan better next time… I would have been able to leave my normal clothes and trainers at work, and run home with only my coat in my bag if I’d thought it through a bit more.

Definitely seems something to try again, and to write up on when pulled off a bit more successfully!

About Marcus Pezzaioli

I started www.diabeticstokebloke.com in September 2018 to document my attempts to get fit after a diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes in April the same year. I believe sharing my story can help anyone who is afraid to exercise with type 1 diabetes, and show that it is not as complicated as it may appear from other sources of information out there. If I can do it, with no CGM and on MDI, starting out as somebody who does not fit the athletic profile whatseover; then anybody can.
