Today I had a HIIT workout* on my training plan. I didn’t get into the 5:00 am class at OTF so I went to the 5:45 pm class after work. It was a good class today. The floor/rower portion didn’t get my heart rate up as much as I would have liked but the tread blocks made up for most of that.

Since I knew I was going to the evening class, I made sure I was done eating my lunch by 12:30 pm today so that all of the food and active insulin would be out of my system for the workout. My BGs stayed steady throughout and only started to raise a little bit after the class was over. HIIT training will do that to me sometimes so I did a small correction about 15 minutes after class in order to stay in range.**

* Orange Theory classes are all HIIT style but are divided into four sub categories (Endurance, Strength, Power and ESP) so the focus changes each day and depending on the class, could either raise or lower my BG.

** If I can avoid it, I also try not to have too much food or active insulin in my system before bed. In this case, a small correction is better than high BG alarms from my pump while I’m trying to sleep.
