This morning my BGs were in a good place when I got up and for the training plan I just had a lower body strength day, no cardio so I didn’t make any adjustments. I kept my basal at the normal rate and didn’t eat anything. I wasn’t lifting super heavy since my legs are still recovering from the race so I didn’t anticipate a spike in BGs from the lifting. I monitored BGs throughout the workout and was slowly drifting down but staying within my target range. As always, I had my freeze dried bananas on hand just in case and some tart cherry juice at home in case of a post-workout drop.

Barbell hip thrust (75 lbs)
Back Squat (155 lbs today, easy-ish but still more than my body weight!)
