Keep tweaking. Lots of exercise can also increase insulin 
requirements because of the body's need to metabolize the extra 
carbs so sitting around may be a push. Its the middle ground where 
basal requirements go down, you do a little, not a lot. However, as 
with everything, its one of those YMMV things. Best solution is to 
keep tweaking. If she needs to do hbs boluses, you can figure the 
'continued' hbs bolus if spread over the basal time would be she same 
or a little more than the increased basal needs. That's not hard and 
fast, but a good starting point.
