Recently I finished reading both Keto Clarity and Primal Endurance. I am not sure why I have decided to finally take the direction of a low carbohydrate lifestyle. Honestly I love carbs…lot. They are lyfe but they don’t love me like I love them. Through my curiosity I read both of these books and fell full force into the mindset. I am training primally and eating ketogenic. #fatfueledbeast in the making over here!
I have made it through the first 21 days of changing to ketogenic eating with much less exercise than normal. Now I am following the primal training ways of no run streaking, gauging myself on a 1-10 scale before decision of breakout workout, scaling back all the normal weekly speed & tempo runs to 2-3 a month and most important…heart rate training. This DOES NOT mean go slow. This means go to a comfort spot for your heart. This means strengthening your heart. Training your heart to perform more efficiently and be able to be a stronger endurance athlete because of it.
I have started the She Sweats Run Builder plan again for the Shamrock Half Marathon training and using the theories of primal endurance…although the sprints are slower…my heart is getting stronger ❤
