Not a great nights sleep last night. Got to bed late, and then was up around 03:00. Just have a lot going on I guess.

After work I was able to head straight over to the Wellness Center for a ride. I set my basal rate to a 55% reduction a bit after 16:00, as I was planning on being out on the bike by 17:00.

As planned, I met Laura from Type1Rider at 17:00 and we headed out for a road bike ride by 17:10.

We did a great loop thru Chapel Hill and into Hillsborough, before heading back to the Wellness Center. I stayed on the regular 2 PowerBar Gels per hour, and took in 2 full water bottles during the 2.5hr ride. Got back to the truck at 19:45, and had a BG of 113.

At that time, I met Mike for a mountain bike ride. Changed bikes, and headed out for another 2 hours on the Fuel. A little lighter on the water intake for this part of the ride, but did take 3 PowerBar Gels while out.

Back to the Wellnesss Center at 21:54, and had a blood glucose of 83. Perfect BG levels, and a fantastic fun ride!!

I set my basal rate back to its normal rate, and headed on home.

When I went to bed at 23:17, I set my basal rate down to a 20% reduction for 6 hours as is my normal procedure after a night training ride.
