Running on Keto – 18th to 24th March 2017.

You can buy Ketogenic Endurance apparel at – – Which is fun way to show that you believe in the benefits of being fat adapted whilst exercising.
This week was what is becoming a standard week. Don’t take that as it was boring, or uninspiring. In fact I very much enjoyed the week. It’s just that it fit into a template I have chosen, nay lets call it a plan… a fitness plan perhaps!!!
This included a weekend long run, which was actually shorter than it should have been. However I just couldn’t get out of bed, and I had to be back for a certain time. The shorter mid week runs, also passed without incident. By passing without incident, I basically mean I didn’t suffer a calf injury. So good news there.
I managed to do my own calisthenics circuit, 3 times this week. Which is one time better than last week, but one short on my original plan of doing it 4 times a week. I think its a nice little circuit, which I can increase the difficulty of when needed. I have a couple of kettlebells I can add to it eventually also.
Yoga went well too, and experimented with some chilled moon Salutations. Which I enjoyed. However I still prefer the more static Hatha yoga.

  1. Thanks for your thoughtful blog on this topic. I’m a longtime distance runner, but just coming back to Keto after a decade. I’ve been eating strictly keto only since January. I’m also a heart rate runner, that’s how I’ve trained for years, but I use the Hanson method. This means while I’m putting in 60+ mile weeks, I’m never doing training runs longer than 16 miles. I haven’t felt the need to fuel on any of my runs so far, but I don’t know how well this will go with 26.2. Are you fueling at all on long runs? Thanks.


    1. Hi. All my long run are fasted, but only up to 14 miles. No problems so far. However i will need to experiment with food and carbs as the distances get longer.


  2. I’m finding the endurance exercise ok while Ketogenic. But when it comes to explosive ecercise I shut down like an overheating Lithium battery….


    1. Yer it does take a bit extra thought training on keto
