"Hi everyone I am new to this site and am looking for some running info. I am on omnipod and have been running on a track but want to go back to roads. Where does everybody keep their meters and fuel while on a distance run? I have never passed out…"

"I'd recommend getting a CGM. I have the Dexcom G4 and it's made it so much easier to work out. I used to go very low during hard speed workouts (400m repeats anyone?) and this notifies me when it starts to crash. I wear the receiver in an…"

"Hi - I had similar issues on MDI. Although I never passed out. I moved to the Tslim pump about 3 months ago. What a difference. Also have the Dexcom G4. With that combo I've been able to watch what's going on and correct. So on a long run…"

"Yes, I have to agree with DEA- your body will adjust pretty quickly. I'm 36 dx 16 years ago. I go on and off the pump over the past 13 years and there's just minor changes in the way you adjust your insulin for a run. With a pump, I would…"

"Oh, one other thing......trust the PDM when it comes to determining how much bolus you need!"

"It took 12 months of tweaking my basal rates thru out the day for me to get my a1c down to 7.0. It helped alot when my endo had me where a CGM for three days: that way she was able to fine tune my basals. So I guess I'm saying to have patience!"

"I just did that a few months ago.... biggest Tip - don`t give up, a pump is a huge learning curve. stick it out for a few months at the very least."

"Hi - I've been using compression sleeves for recovery and they seem to work well - as for shoes, I suggest getting fitted at a specialty running store - they're generally pretty knowledgable and whiling to help!"

"Unfortunately I was just getting over a stomach flu when I started so I was off my normal levels. At this point I'm sticking with my initial numbers until I get a little more data to work with. I'm still mostly under 9 or 10 with a couple…"

"I'm just starting on the pod - it's been one week. My only suggestion is carry some tape with you in case it starts to come off. I don't think it's that much of an issue for normal users but running and sweating might make the…"

DEA replied to T1Runner's discussion 'Tips/Advice? Runner transitioning to pump from shots' in the group Type 1 Runners
"Nah. Your body's reaction to exercise is pretty trained. I started again from scratch and it took a while to really get to a steady-state running process, but once you make sure your basal is okay for a run without additional fueling (or with a…"

T1Runner replied to T1Runner's discussion 'Tips/Advice? Runner transitioning to pump from shots' in the group Type 1 Runners
"Thanks again for the tips. I'm (probably overtly) concerned that all my training and management will be scrubbed and I'll have to start from scratch but i guess in the long run (no pun intended!) it'll be worth it."

DEA replied to T1Runner's discussion 'Transition to pump?' in the group OmniPod Users
"I carry the Gu chews, too, just in case, but I was surprised that I didn't really need it during the Half Marathon at all, but they are certainly something I would not cross the start line without. Running around my neighborhood, though, I…"

"Hey there. I replied a bit on your post over in the OmniPod area, but I'll reiterate that shots made it impossible for me to run, and the pump made me able to run at least as well as I was running 20 years ago before my daily injections started…"
