I'm just getting back into it after a LONG rest period (several
years!).  I HAVE noticed, however a greater tendency to go low for the
next 24-36 hours.  I'm not sure if this is just due to the exercise, or
a decrease in insulin resistence.

Just BE SURE to check before you start...check halfway through...check
after...and have PLENTY of glucose tabs at hand JUST IN CASE.

The last thing you want is to go low, and drop a heavy dumbell on your
already at-risk toes!

Good luck,
