hello, I (foolishly, I think) signed up to do a mud run at the end of august. I have never done one before and that's why I say foolishly-don't know what im getting myself into! it is five kilometres with like 15 or twenty obstacles (mud pit, going under barbed wire, climb over a wall, tires)
of course I am worried about being high from nerves, though that's never happened to me before. im more worried about going low and so I want to carry my meter and stuff with me. in these mud runs, there are apparently mud pits and its really, well, muddy. I love the whole getting dirty and muddy but how will I keep this stuff still working? should I just leave it with my spectator? but then I don't have it. put it in a zip lock bag in some kind of fanny pack/bum bag? that seems like very little protection after looking at finishers covered from head to toe in mud. I would really like to have it with me. and some glucose tabs.
I don't think I will run the race carrying insulin, as I would never shoot up during exercise-correctin a 200 often brings me into the 90s and that's sitting still. I will have my spectator hold onto it and if im high after the race I will correct. also, if im high right after the race, should I wait like an hour and see if it comes down itself or should I just correct immediately?
