Has it really been over a month since I wrote something here? I really should do something about that. The issue is that I haven’t felt like much of interest was happening recently, and the only thing worse than not writing would be writing boring drivel.
Anyway, I’m slowly ramping my miles back up again in anticipation of starting my marathon program come mid-July. This means I’m feeling better and less cranky, which is a good thing, but it also means I need to force myself to be patient and not go too hard or too far too fast (insert Veruca Salt voice here: But I want to be fast again NOW). In the spirit of not punishing my body I’m going to run this weekends ODDyssey Half Marathon with my friend Mike and try to bring him in under two hours. Mike is a relative novice to running, and just ran his first half last month. Even this early into my training a sub-2 should be do-able for me so we’ll see how it goes! On a personal note – this race is the day after my one year “diaversary”and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate.
Speaking of diabetes, I had an appointment with my endo the other day and got a copy of my most recent labs: my 4th consecutive sub-6 HbA1C! (just picture me doing the “cabbage patch” here).
