Blog Refresh

The blog has been a little slow lately, so I decided to take a look back and examine what I have already written about in order to find some writing creativity going forward. As I read through my posts, I noticed that 1) the subject matter was a little too repetitive (even for a blog about riding a bicycle) and 2) I never really discuss being a diabetic, which is an integral part of The Merckx Project.

So going forward, I am going to make sure I expand my focus to include how being a diabetic effects my efforts on the bike. I'm also hoping to start including before and after ride blood sugars and an estimated carbs consumed during rides counts over on twitter when I post MapMyRide results. It will be in a format like 133/112/25 to keep it simple.

I'm starting to like how I am feeling out on the bike right now, and the miles are adding up. The increased effort is starting to cause low blood sugars throughout the day, however, and I'm starting to eat like I have my late-teens/early-twenties metabolism again (see, new emphasis). But you'll have to stay tuned for the next post for more details and updates...
