Today I decided to test my foot running again. I hit just over 2.5 miles total (keeping my run/bike streak alive) and while I’m not 100% it did feel a heck of a lot better than my last run attempt. The above workout was designed by my amazing personal trainer husband (feel free to steal if you like). It was just what I needed this morning!

This morning around 6:45 am, I woke up, saw the dawn phenomenon hitting and in my groggy state, instantly gave myself a 0.6 U correction. It worked but then the insulin was still impacting my BGs by the time I wanted to work out, which is why I set an extra long pre-workout temp target and had some carbs and protein just before working out. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to run or if I would have to sub in some biking for cardio so I wasn’t 100% sure how the workout would effect my BGs. When I saw my short runs weren’t stopping my BGs from drifting too high, I gave myself a correction mid-workout. It worked out pretty well this morning despite having a million variables at play.
