I have not long started my running journey, having joined a local running club 4 weeks ago! Still just doing the running/walking stage at the moment and I am currently feeling as if there will be no way I could ever run non-stop for any length of time I know it is early days but some days it feels easier than others, if that makes any sense? We are progressing to a slightly longer jog tonight and I am feeling apprehensive about that because last week I felt I was going to pass out on the last run section!!! Such a lightweight!
I have been an insulin dependent diabetic for 21 years and really want to get to grips with my blood-sugar level control and lose a bit of weight too. I have been using pump therapy for a year now and wondered if there was any other pump wearers here who could provide a bit of inspiration or advice about managing continuous running whilst wearing a pump? Also, how many times should I be out practicing what I have learnt at the club each week. I aim to repeat it 2/3 times a week, is that about right?
Many thanks for reading and it would be good to hear from any other novices just starting your running journey or from any diabetic runners who have mastered the art of exercising without having a hypo every time!
