Three Rides’ Data

Over the last eight days, I did three big rides of 65, 102, and 72 miles. I’ve been treating each of my rides as experiments, trying to figure out what the hell I’m doing with diabetes and exercise by the time I start Ironman training in the spring. I’ll write more about these rides soon, but I just wanted to share a little data.

Diabetes data

Ride #1


Ride 1:

Insulin-on-board (IOB) at the start = 0 units
Insulin during = 1.5 units
Carbs during = 250-270 grams
BG @ start = 240 mg/dL
BG during = 175 @ 2.5 hrs, 155 @ 5 hrs
BG @ end = 138

Ride 2:

Insulin-on-board (IOB) at the start = 0 units
Insulin during = 1.3 units
Carbs during = 280-300 grams
BG @ start = 220 mg/dL
BG during = 358 @ 1.5 hrs, 377 @ 2.5 hrs, 204 @ 4 hrs, 240 @ 6 hrs
BG @ end = 274

Ride 3:

Insulin-on-board (IOB) at the start = 2.0 units
Insulin during = 0 units
Carbs during = 325-350 grams
BG @ start = 226 mg/dL
BG during = 169 @ 1 hr, 132 @ 2 hrs, 162 @ 2.5 hrs, 128 @ 3.5 hrs, 157 @ 5.5 hrs
BG @ end = 213

Every day a little closer . . .
