Barefoot and Butter: Running on Keto – 18th to 24th February 2017.

The most important pieces of equipment you need for doing yoga are your body and your mind.- Rodney Yee.


I was really pleased with last weekend’s long run. I was happy, with my distance, form and energy. I controlled my pace by only breathing in and out through my nose. This keeps me fairly close to my MAF heart rate.

I had a slight issue with my feet. The Vibrams, hurt the webbing of my feet a bit. I am putting this down to the socks I was using, which probably made the fit too tight. I have some thinner socks I can use, for next time.

Apart from that I did one short run, and did yoga every day. I have a 10k race this weekend, and I was a bit paranoid about getting injured in training. So I talked myself out of doing anything more strenuous. So it was a nice and chilled exercise week.

  1. Good luck with the 10K – are you running for a time or just keeping things nice and steady?


    1. More of a getting used to being at races deal. It was a fun race but tough, probably 70% of it was running on beaches.


      1. Running on sand is never easy but great for conditioning. Your legs might not thank you the day after but it’s all good training in the long run. 🙂
