    Running is super tough at the mo. I'm 12 days in to Keto, been passing ketones in the urine for 10 days. I have very little when I'm out running at the moment, I'm running 7m/km (11.2m/mile). This is slow, I can normally run 6m/km (9.6m/mile) and my legs are sore, they just feel so tired when I'm out, hills and stairs are an absolute nightmare. Cardio-wise I reckon I could keep going, but the legs say no.
    I've run 6-7k 4 days last week.
    I think this is a natural part of adaptation, but thought I'd see if anyone had any answers.
