Today we enjoyed a beautiful ride and run through the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma Counties. I was surprised to see wildflowers still in bloom and the hills still a nice shade of green (although that is fading now). It was a hot day--somewhere in the 80's--and it was a struggle to keep hydrated. Here's a snapshot of the diabetes-related stuff. I think that next time, I will cut back on the high basal rate an hour or less into the ride and then try to find a basal rate I can stick with for the remainder. I am trying to simplify things but am afraid I still may need to do the taper-as-I-go method for basal rates. I am trying to avoid bolusing during exercise to avoid the more sudden changes in BG that may result.
