    5.5 at 6AM and 5.5 at 9AM. It has been consistent at 5.5 overnight too. It really is bizzare given am 60 hours into fasting.

    There must be some kind of black market deal going on in my liver for this sugar supply to happen in my blood stream given all legal means must already be exhausted. I will carry on fasting till evening as a minimum.

    Have a great start of the weekend everyone. :)

    5.9 today after a couple of weeks of 6s and 7s. No rhyme, no reason, no sense, no pattern, no clue

    5.8 this morning. Glad to see it in the 5's as yesterday my BG did not drop below 7.5 all day I seem to have lost what control I had.

    5.7 on Friday, forgot yesterday so didn't test until after breakfast and scored a 7.0.
    5.5 this morning.

    Long run (for me) today, 9K working up to 10K.

    Cold but beautiful morning here in Northants.

    Have a great day everyone.
