I have been outdoors in the sun more in the past 15 months than I had EVER BEFORE IN MY LIFE.
Since entering lockdown and working at home, the two hours of my commute were replaced with two hours of outdoors exercise and I’ve been able to hit 10,000-15,000 steps every day for the past 15 months.
Just a few months in I had learned a lot about exercise and how it affects my bg with respect to insulin absorption. Part of this was the school of hard knocks with hypos, but the plus side was learning how insulin followed by a few thousand steps is way more effective at getting a rapid kicking-in effect.
Now I’m back to commuting to work (bus and train) several days a week but have been regularly replacing parts of the bus or rail trips with walking, with increased confidence as to what it’s going to do to my bg or more effectively control my bg.
