So I’ve been keto for just over two weeks and I’ve started back running and I’ve been doing great! In the past when I’ve been running regularly and then switched to keto, I really struggled and mentally too because the performance just wasn’t there all of a sudden. This time, I’ve not run properly in over a year so maybe I wasn’t expecting great things but I went out and I’ve surprised myself, running 5-10K with ease. So the question is – am I fat adapted? Or am I just not expecting to do great at the running? How else can I tell if I’m fat adapted?
2 weeks in it’s very doubtful that you’re already there (unless you were seriously low carb pre keto?).Maybe this time you’re doing better at hitting macros and electrolytes and are therefore fuelling up better? You’re probably even better at running than you thought you were (always a nice bonus!!).
