Well, you hadn't eaten anything there which would increase your BG had you? And if you do exercise that alone would reduce your BG so that's no surprise, and then your body stepped in by releasing some glucose into your bloodstream (cos that's what your liver does, stores it and then releases it when the brain tells it it needs to) which sorted you out again. The only trouble is, there is no way of gauging when the liver will do this, or how much it will release.

Your job is to achieve a happy medium - if you intend to exercise it's usual to consume some carb before you start, just not masses of carb. Would have done better with a spoonful or 2 of rice, or a chapatti with the curry. (or steal a corner off someone else's naan!)

Your levels are dropping because you are emptying reserves and heading back towards normal, but your pancreas is probably still a bit hysterical. I think it is just a matter of getting back on course and heading for normal numbers, nothing sinister.
