Had a scare on my bike today...I am diabetic type 2 and have to keep my carb count low. I think, though, that I need to eat more carbs before my workout so my body doesnt use up all of the glucose that it has. I had NO carbs before I went out to ride today. About 2.5 miles into the ride, I had a body crash. I just shut down, totally. I thought I was going to pass out. Shaky, numbness in my hands, wasn't thinking straight. Once I stopped, I called my wife. She came and loaded the bike in the car and we went straight to get orange juice. Once I drank about half the bottle, I started feeling much better.
That scared me. Never really felt that bad before. That won't happen again. Im gonna eat some carbs next time!
