"The one things I might add in addition to what Daniel said is that while you are still on shots, you should try to exercise at the same time on the days that you exercise. I say this because your body may utilize insulin differently throughout the…"

"Devon, it's been my experience that things will kind of suck in the beginning. You do things right one day and you'll do them wrong the next. By that, I mean, you'll need to get experience with how your body reacts to runs, and long…"

"This is a great discussion, and I was actually wondering some of the same things. I am training for the Tour de Cure in July. I was diagnosed in Jan 21010, and as of yet am not on the pump. I find that I need to get my BG pretty high before I ride…"

"Emily, you've gotten some really good advice here. I've done several marathones, a bunch of longer (50 and 100 mile) mt. bike races. Including one solo 24 hour mt. bike race. Some keys are, 1. you need to start the workout with a BG around…"

"I can eat gels w/ water all day long (and they work great)...esp for running. For iron distance tri length, eating nothing but gels all day long can have poor consequences towards the end of the run (and not being able to find a portapottie...lol)."

"Thanks Bradford, that's a great tip. I think from among the two I'll probably choose Gatorade like you said you do. I think I can carry enough Gatorade on me for the half distance anyway. What about gels with water, does that screw with…"

Bradford replied to Emily Pettersen's discussion 'Long Runs and Type 1--Nutrition During Workouts' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"The one thing I would recommend (since you've mentioned you're already insulin sensitive and when you take in glucose you need it to be working) is that gatorade (and gatorade Endurance Formula as well, which is often served at something…"

What you do sounds great...you're not likely to get stale! I too love the ocean.....memories of Summers spent in the cottage on the St Lawrence River...not far from the gulf. Whales in them waters...and sharks. Deep and wide at that point; can't see the other shore. I miss the sound of the waves...the scent...the hues....but my "fixes" are infrequent!! Take care, and be well....linda.

My pump will show active insulin whenever I use the bolus wizard, so I can check it that way if I need too. Mostly I just judge it by that last time I ate and how much I bolused then. I avoid running soon after eating (< 2 or 3 hours) if at all possible.
