I go to a beginner’s flow class once a week that has a short flow sequence incorporated into stretching and other easy poses. I generally do okay BG-wise but occasionally need a candy or g-tab boost toward the end of class. I don’t set a temp basal but do make sure I don’t have any IOB. (It’s a late afternoon class.) Also I try to start with a BG around 120 when possible. The teacher knows about my T1 so that when I have to carb up and rest it is no problem. But I don’t like having to miss out on some of the practice (though that usually occurs toward the end of class).
I want to start taking a somewhat more challenging morning class and am not quite sure how to prepare. I am thinking I need to add more protein to my breakfast and eat earlier than I usually do to minimize IOB. Is a temporary basal appropriate, maybe 25 percent reduction as a starting point an hour before?
I know this is a YDMV kind of situation and also an experiment for me but I have not had a regular exercise program in many years and am feeling a little anxious about this. So any suggestions greatly appreciated!
