That doesn't mean that I will not have to make changes to my basal rates, with the days becoming shorter most of my training needs to be done in the morning before work. I will miss my evening runs and rides but it is time to transition to fall and winter workout hours. This morning a trip to the YMCA from 5-615 was the workout of the day, 40 minutes of cardio and it was off to the weight room. I believe that the weight room was the cause for my blood sugar being below my set range for a majority of the day. My body is very use to the cardio workouts making the transition to weight training will be tough one moving forward.
As always I will be testing my blood sugar before going into the weight room and after, I will also be using a food diary to see what foods help post workout. Along with that i will be tweaking my basal rates with the help of doctor who will be receiving weekly reports as I transition to my fall and winter schedule. I love the relationship that my doctor and I have, I love that I can email him and receive a call or an email within hours. I have found that having an open line of communication with my endocrinologist has helped me tremendously as an athlete with diabetes.
