Today I decided to get back to my usual morning workout routine. Since I’m working from home, I decided to do some experimenting with timing. When I woke up, my BGs were a bit high from the dawn phenomenon so I decided I would ride until they came down. That took about 10 minutes of easy/moderate biking, which seems to drop my BGs very quickly. On a normal day, after my morning workout, I would be rushing around the house getting ready for work and the dawn phenomenon would be spiking my BGs back up. Today, I let that spike happen and then I got back on the bike to finish my ride instead of correcting with insulin. Overall, it worked pretty well! It helps to have some additional flexibility!
