This week, one of the pioneers of the DIY movement is turning her attention to exercise. Dana Lewis is partnering with other researchers to create a tool to help you make better and easier decisions around whatever workout you choose. There’s a lot of variability here – big difference between say, weight lifting and long distance running – so this is no easy task. Dana will explain the tools they’re using, the big goals here, and we get to catch up about what she’s using these days to manage her life with T1D which now includes ultramarathoning.
