Re: [IP] working out with the pump

Like someone else posted, my basal rates are based on me working out every
(almost) weekday, so I don't change anything unless I don't workout.  I also
workout first thing in the morning, and if I am low, or on the low side, I
just eat some candy before I leave and I might suck on some hard candy.
Lately I have just been playing racquetball, but I normally I also do
cardiovascular and weights.    Gail made a mention of adreneline while
playing tennis;  I have ended raqcuetball game higher than when I started.
Actually, when I play hockey, I will normally bolus 2 units  before I start.
When I lift weights, I will go high after, so I will normally bolus 2 units
before or during the lifting, if it is my normal session, but YMMV.
Depending on how you lift, it might not be necessary.
