My Big Blue Test did not go very well at all. I figured I would do my Big Blue Test during my first boxing workout. I did not set a temp basal I wanted to try my workout with no adjustments, if it didn't go well I would adjust. I have some serious adjusting to do. Before my workout I was at 158 and I felt good about that reading, I knew my blood sugar would drop but I believed I was safe. Twenty minutes later I was down to 52 and I got my butt handed to me.
The boxing workout was amazing, I have not worked out at that intensity since last winter. The first five minutes of my workout I was doing jumping jacks and footwork speed drills. Two minutes of each with a minute break, just from that my legs were burning. It is weird but a marathon got me ready for boxing pain. After that it was two minutes straight of pushups and then sit-ups and then squats. Again a minute rest in between each, I would be drinking apple juice during my minute break. It was then time to work on my punches for a bit, punching the air is no fun but for now it will have to do. Then to end my workout it was time to shadow box!! That is when the fun started, I have no clue if my form is correct or if I'm moving fast enough but man did that kick my butt. Having to bounce around and throw punches for three minutes takes a lot out of you. By the third round my legs were like Jello and my punches wouldn't hurt a fly.
Tomorrow after my doctors appointment it is more training, my thought is to set a temp basal at least an hour before my workout. The weird part is that my workout will only last thirty to forty minutes. I will then have to cancel my temp basal and probably take insulin to makeup for the time my pump was giving me less insulin. All of this is new and just like the boxing it will take sometime to figure everything out.
