From a job that has me on my feet from eight to twelve hours a day to a love for trail running and road cycling I love being on the go. For a longtime I would make the appropriate adjustments on my insulin pump so that I could go for a run or be on the bike. Now time is at a premium and the ability to schedule a run or bike ride is harder to come bye. If I can find an hour to ride or go for a run then I need to just go and not have to suspend my pump and wait an hour.
Yesterday just after 1pm my blood sugar was at 140, the little guy was asleep and I had some time to go for a run. I had no insulin on board and decided a half of peanut butter and jelly sandwich and some water would be all I needed to make sure my blood sugar stayed in range while I went running. I would of course bring a snack with me just in case but I could just go and not think.
This setup isn't for everyone, it is important that you do what works for you. Right now what works best for me is to be on injections. It gives me a lot more freedom and my A1C stays the same, for me it is a win win.
