My son's graduation from Field Medical Training. He is now "DOC" with the 7th Marines. HORAH. Being an ex-Army Ranger I'm proud that my son has decided on a combat post. Being a father I have nightmares about loosing my son. Funny, I never knew I put my mother through this with my choices. I'll just put it in gods hands and trust that we'll all be good.

This weekend and week were really tough with the training. I am sore everywhere. I did a 3 mile run on Tuesday, 40 min bike on Wednesday, 6 mile run with 3x1600 meter repeats on Thursday, Saturday I did 1.5 hour bike at 17 mph avg, and an 11 mile long run on Sunday. Now I get to do it all over again this week.

For the most part I followed the diet lifestyle pretty well. Was even able to splurge a little bit without guilt. BG's mostly under control, a few highs but not like it was. The changes I made to the pump have been working pretty well.
