So, I had a really crappy 6 mile run last weekend. Follow up with a day where I felt like I wanted to stay in bed all day (which is pretty much what I did). I got scared... I have a goal race in the middle of November that requires a full schedule of training (50km trail race). I have therefore decided to back off of the keto diet until after that race. I have learned so much that I feel I will be able to work through it much better (hopefully!!). I really did feel pretty good - but I'm not sure I was really into ketosis yet. My only real issue was the constant 'pastiness' and being thirsty all the time. I felt instantly better once I increased my carbs. I also puffed up a little with the increased fluid retention :/
