It was raining today and during my run yesterday, my foot started to get inflamed again so I decided to hop back on the bike trainer for a quick 6 today. This morning I had a pretty heavy protein breakfast around 9:00 am so I tried to time my ride for when that spike was happening. If you’ve seen some of my other graphs and how quickly cycling normally drops my BGs, this graph is the perfect demonstration of how protein and fat can be used to fuel a workout. Not only did I not need any carbs and had some active insulin in my system from breakfast, but I actually had to give myself additional correction insulin so I wouldn’t go high. Without the correction, I could have worked out for even longer if I didn’t have other things I needed to accomplish today. Overall it was a pretty good ride and I was able to go a bit faster than when I started this streak without getting my heart rate above 128. I think I may be getting better at this cycling thing! 😉
