My local OTF is still open, surprisingly. They’re taking extra cleaning precautions and have shortened classes to 45 minutes to allow for extra cleaning time. Coach James was on point today and threw an extra challenge my way when I was on the bike. I still didn’t get to my 6 mile streak goal (I only got 3.7 miles) so I’ll have to ride my bike later. The body weight workout on the floor was good one and something that could be done at home without any equipment other than a low chair and some stairs. I’ll be saving this to do again in the future for sure!

BGs were steady today, just a bit higher than I want overnight and the dawn phenomenon hit post workout. I had to do a bunch of additional corrections this morning to combat that but topped out at 160 just after 7:15 am before it started to fall back into range again. I also had my protein coffee and bolused for the inevitable protein spike that will hit later.

Since I didn’t get all of my biking miles in at OTF this morning, I dug my bike out of the shed and set it up on my trainer. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize my odometer was broken.* Since I had 2.3ish miles to make up and I didn’t exactly know how far I was going, decided to ride for 15 minutes at an intense pace. I used my heart rate to gauge intensity and knew I would hit well above my 6 mile goal for the day in that time, even if I didn’t really know what my actual total mileage is today.

I wasn’t exactly sure how a quick ride would impact my BGs since I really don’t ride often and I had some extra insulin lingering from lunch so I had some carbs 30 mins before the ride since I was at 93 and had been trending down. After the ride, I thought I misjudged having the pre-ride carbs, so I corrected for them. Then, before the correction insulin hit, I started to drop quickly from the ride. Whoops! I had 2 ritz crackers (4g carb) to stop the drop. Small inputs = small mistakes! I stayed in pretty good range for the whole thing, not too shabby!

*If I rode outside, I could have used my GPS watch but since the sun was setting, I decided that I would set up my bike on the trainer tonight.
