When I woke up this morning, my blood sugar was a bit higher than I like it so I did a small correction and lowered my basal to prevent going low later in my workout.
On today’s training plan I had upper body since my legs are still pretty beat up from the race.* My BG was 91 at the lowest today and when I saw it rise to 98 by the end of my workout, I knew the dawn phenomenon was kicking back in so I ended my temp target (reduced basal) and gave a small correction. I gave a few other small corrections in the 30 minutes following my workout to prevent going out of range.**

*I did do a 30 minute shake out run on Monday and some yoga and stretching on Tuesday and that has helped speed my recovery.

**Yes, this is “stacking insulin”. I do this frequently to stay in range because I’m on a pump and CGM and can see where I’m trending to prevent lows. If you don’t have a CGM, this may not be a good approach to manage BGs.
