kestrel replied to parker34's discussion 'marathon' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"Yeah, this was pretty much the conclusion I was coming to. Smaller more frequent doses of carbs without bolusing is probably the way to go, for me, for now. (I did 7 hilly miles yesterday, finishing BS 110!) I like the portable, nonmessy things that…"

"I'd add that a lot of the gels are 25G of carbs (at least the ones I have left from my last race...I didn't need them but was unable to pass up free carbs so I lugged them in my sleeves...) and I've noticed that I can feel better with…"

kestrel replied to parker34's discussion 'marathon' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"Thanks -- this is really helpful, the links too. I *have* learned to watch out for IOB. And my basal is really low right now, so I may have less trouble with lows than others do. As my distances get longer, I'll start to experiment with…"

Jerry Nairn replied to parker34's discussion 'marathon' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"As you can see from the responses so far, there are a lot of different ways to handle this. It takes experimentation, and you have to keep in mind that what you did the day before may be significant, your requirements may change as you get into…"

Kurt Bauman replied to parker34's discussion 'marathon' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"Hello, I would be happy to help you in any way I can. First of all I would try not to have very little insulin in my body when starting to excercise. If I have just bolused I wait at least 3 hours before I try to run. Also, always carry your…"

jljr replied to parker34's discussion 'marathon' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"I take 1 unit of Novalog along with my regular dose of Levemir before doing my regular Sunday run (12-14 miles). I take 1 GU gel before running and use concentrated Gatorade at about 1 hour (equals about 15 gms of carbs). My bs is usually around 130…"

Terry Keelan replied to parker34's discussion 'marathon' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"I do not bolus during a run, even for the gels. Our need to eat while we run for distance is not different than non-diabetics. Our greater risk is going too low, not ingesting too much carbs. Everyone needs to find their own balance and fine tune…"

kestrel replied to parker34's discussion 'marathon' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"Hey, can I add a more specific question? When you're going for long runs, do you bolus for the gels etc. that you eat? I used to run long-ish trail races (8-25 miles) a couple of years ago (pre-dx). Now my "long run" is back up to ~5…"

Terry Keelan replied to parker34's discussion 'marathon' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"Two marathons and five half marathons since diagnosis in 2001. You can do it too. As others have said, watch for low bgs and start slow. Good luck ! Terry"

Lindsey O'Rourke replied to parker34's discussion 'First Little Ride' in the group Cycling Diabetics
"Awesome! I just starting riding again last week. I use to ride a lot as a kid, with my dad. We'd ride from our house to the beach and then down the coast. I must have been in SO much better shape then... Cause we'd go for 15-20 miles and…"

dside replied to parker34's discussion 'First Little Ride' in the group Cycling Diabetics
"Thanks for the tips. Planning my first big ride (50 miles) since starting on insulin 2 months ago and was planning on bringing a bunch of Gu packs, some gatorade and my meter. I guess it'll be a big experiment. I drop between 30 and 40 BG…"

acidrock23 replied to parker34's discussion 'marathon' in the group Athletic Diabetics
"I haven't run any full marathons but I like the idea of running shorter races first, if only to get used to running in the morning. I *loathe* running first thing in the morning and make modifications to my schedule on race days and am glad I…"

Welcome home Parker!
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in, you can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the space provided. Take in some of the blogs/discussions as well. The house in the photo is where Dr. Frederick Banting lived and had his medical practice in London, Ontario, Canada...before going to the University of Toronto to work on diabetes research, and ultimately the discovery of Insulin.
