I have lived with T1 for 38 years & have been a high performance athlete for best part last 30 years. Cycling & rowing. Until injury a18 months ago I did on average 3 hours daily. Cardio, low & high intensity & weights. It's tough to manage but I've gotten to know my body, its quirks & how to manage. Recovery takes longer. Don't be afraid of exercise & diabetes; do what you enjoy. Any Q, ask
