    This morning I woke up at 8.6 after a pretty steady night as shown on my G6, and this was after a couple of glasses of red wide and fish and chips, so pretty happy.

    today is our “Gringley Gallopers” run group at 09:00 for about 6k

    my routine is a sausage butty at 06:00, 4.5 units of Fiasp, pump onto 50% basal at 08:00, glass of water with electrolyte drops at 08:15, toilet and then go running for 35 mins.

    this is a routine that seems to work for me.

    BG usually drops by about 2 just after the run but rebounds back to higher than I want, BUT I don’t treat as it drops back after about 30 minutes..........it’s the post exercise false high !
