I feel like right now, I am on the starting line, and training from here on out will need to be as intense as a race would be. I had time off, due to illness, and now I have a little over a month to kick it into gear. I go back to work and school tomorrow at CSU. I’ve set up my daily schedule to include my workouts so that I don’t get overwhelmed and end up not finding the time in a day to train. It’s easy to do that, when you have a lot of priorities that don’t necessarily weigh over others. All I know is that when I read stories of people who have successfully trained for marathons despite schedules, unforeseen situations or even Type 1 diabetes, that I am able to do so as well.
There is a book called “Diabetic Athlete’s Handbook” by Dr. Sheri Coldberg that is an awesome read for diabetics who don’t want to be held back by their diagnosis. It ties in sport-specific training guides with nutrition and blood sugar/insulin management. It is a great guide to achieving peak performance for competitive athletes with diabetes. I’ve included an Amazon link below if you’re interested in reading the book!
