    River Ayr Way today.

    63km in 6hrs 51 mins, a PB by about an hour for that distance on a tougher course than the previous PB.

    More to follow later, but another kick in the nuts for Type 1

    Let's all kick Type 1 in the nuts at least once a week.

    I'd have to find a T1, with nuts, to kick. But, I like a challenge.

    Well done on the PB. For my 63km would be about 5ltrs and about an hour, depending on traffic lights etc. ;)

    Nice one @ElyDave details please! Sounds like you were absolutely flying in your teaser.

    Amazing to run that distance even, let alone in that time!

    Well done. A bit more T1-ass-kicking! And a question. Post-race you took 0.5 iu for 40 g carb and said it was half your normal bolus. So, is your normal insulin to carb ratio 1:80? And is that every day or on race days only?

    Other way round, what I had post race was 1:80, normal is 1:25.

    For a 40g snack I'd normally be taking 1.6U with no corrections needed. After a long run (90 mins or more) I tend to have residually higher insulin sensitivity, as well as the muscles trying to suck up all the carbs to replenish their stores, so err on the side of caution to avoid the delayed hypo

    So you have actually worked out how your post-exercise bolusing needs to vary from normal. I'm impressed. I'm still going on instinct and caution. I look at what my pump suggests and think, "Naaaah. That's a hypo waiting to happen." And cut it down to whatever "feels" right. I guess I'd better start logging those moments better and trying to spot the pattern.

    (Oh, my mental arithmetic was a bit off in that question, I just realized. Maybe I'd better do a bit less guessing on my own boluses.)
