I:C ratio = 1:5
Daily Lantus dose = 25 u.
1/28 - 5 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.:
- Jogged at 5.0 speed for 15 minutes (hard to breathe, had to stop)
- Upper-body weight lifting (minimal)
Lantus worked like a charm. I was not high during "fasting" times. Continued to use modified (read: making it up as I go) carb ratios with success.
1/30 - 5 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.:
- Jogged at 5.0 speed for 30 minutes
- Started going low toward the end so didn't do any additional exercise
I:C ratio = 1:6 or 1:7 (depending on time of day)
Daily Lantus dose = 24 u.
What blows my mind about all of this is that the impact on my blood sugars and insulin sensitivity was so dramatic after only one (incredibly modest) workout. It didn't take months of cardio - it took ONE SESSION of cardio. Here's hoping I can keep it up...
