I had to force myself to go swimming tonight. I did not feel like it much at all, mostly because the next two weeks I dont' get much of a break. Tomorrow I have a workshop, Monday I'm travellin gfor work, next weekend I am working Saturday and Sunday, so I wn't really get a full weekend for two weeks.
Anyway, I went! I was 7.2 (130) before dinner and did a 50% bolus for 18g. Two hours later before swimming I was 11.4 (205). I swam 2 km and it took me about an hour and a half. Right after swimming I was 4.6 (83). I did a 0.5 unit bolus despite my instinct to not bolus when I am that low and not eating!
Now, an hour after finishing, I am 7.3 (131)! I've corrected that with another 0.75 unit. So assuming I don't shoot up over the next few hours, I figured tonight out, at least!
One negative is that my ears got really messed up tonight for some reason. They're all plugged now and I could barely hear the audible traffic signal on the way home from the bus stop (some lady had to tell me I could go, I thought it was coming from another crosswalk). So I hope that goes away soon! Not sure what caused it, either, other than maybe some kind of interaction with the water and my allergies/sinuses (which have been acting up lately).
