This morning my BGs were a bit high when I got up since I had a lower body strength day on my training plan. I did a small correction since I knew I wasn’t going to be doing a lot of cardio. I also kept my basal at the normal rate and didn’t eat anything since I knew the dawn phenomenon would likely be raising my BGs and as you can see it didn’t let me down today.

The workout itself felt pretty good. Legs are feeling surprisingly fresh although still recovering and definitely not hitting any PRs today.
