Short and sweet post tonight.
Again, illness has struck this week, and I only managed 2 runs.
I’m not saying this to complain, after all I’m sure I will have worse weeks with type 1 diabetes, but rather to again try and hammer home the point that…
If you have type 1 diabetes, and your doctor/diabetes nurse is not advising against exercise, and if you need to add exercise to your life then please just give it a go. I’ve had 3 weeks out of 4 where I’ve managed only 2 runs due to feeling ill, yet I still feel infinitely fitter than when I started this blog. And you know what? That 5k still feels very very doable.
Doing something is better than doing nothing.
What have I learned this week?
Sadly illness is something I will have to deal with more now that I have type 1 diabetes. I’m trying to see this a small extra challenge though, rather than something to get too despondent about.
