Make it a habit to increase your food when you plan extra exercise. Team sports are fun, and there's no reason you shouldn't participate freely.
But you must take extra food every hour during strenuous exercise to balance the calories you are burning. And you must always have fast acting sugar with you in case of a reaction . An insulin reaction is still possible hours after exercising. During prolonged, strenuous exercise (longer than 1 hour) sugar may be borrowed from your muscles and liver. Your body replenishes these stores over the next 12 - 24 hours.
