This morning I went for a 5k (3.1 mile) run through my hilly neighborhood and Marty came along to keep me company! It was still dark when we started but the sun was up before we finished. We live near the top of a hill so today we ran to the bottom of our neighborhood, back up to the highest point and then back home. I have to say, my legs were a little sore after the past few days so we took it at a pretty easy pace.
Around 1:30 am, I had to correct a high and my BGs were still slowly coming down from that just before the run. After yesterday, I was a bit nervous about going low again, so I had some extra gummies as a preventative measure even though I had a feeling the dawn phenomenon would probably be enough to keep me safe. I corrected for the carbs as soon as I was done and still in a good place. Then I kept an eye on it to see if I would have another spike from the carbs/dawn phenomenon and I did. You can see my BGs beginning to climb again despite the run and correction pushing me back down. I gave an additional correction/pre-bolus for breakfast and I still spiked to 145 by 8:00 am without having any additional food/drink.
