My son’s heavy but irregular exercise regimen has always given us a hard time, often creating the need for many basal changes.
He takes part in multiple sports, each of which has very different intensities. These days it is swimming, soccer and volley ball with occasional track.
The fact that daily schedules vary a lot, and, worse, that as seasons change the numbers and types of practices change make big differences to his basal needs. Swimming, of course, makes the biggest difference.
I am reminded of this today. Swimming is between 2 sessions right now, on a three-week hiatus. We just spent two days walking around Washington DC 8-10 hours a day. Last night he and I stayed up till 3am while he was eating carbs every 45 minutes, probably 50 carbs in the evening
How do you deal with basal need changes due to exercise without always being behind your bogey?
