As tough as the transition from inside workouts to outside workouts has been, for the diabetes athlete the transition is a little more challenging. Workouts become longer and in the beginning of the season my basal rates are a little higher than the middle of summer. That presents the challenge, knowing when to set my temp basal is key. The good news is that I will have my CGM back for my race this Saturday, that goes a long way a few hours before the race. Seeing the trend of my blood sugar gives me a great idea of where I will be at later in the day.
Another season is here and I can't wait to be back on the road cycling and running. As always the future is a mystery but I'm confident in my diabetes management and in my fitness that this season could be the best yet!!
