This episode is a little bonus episode, where I basically do a podcast on a post-race digest, but instead of someone else, I’ll be interviewing myself.
If you’re interested in completing your own keto half marathon or keto marathon in a ketogenic state, then I’ve put together a training plan just for you
- I always like to have some sort of crazy goal,
- that’s usually out of reach of my current potential
- or done in a different way
- without these goals, I default to being a lazy slob with no purpose.
- Goals? ride through Europe, three peaks challenge Melbourne, and recently this marathon.
- How I got into the ketogenic diet,
- King of bananas
- implemented during my three peaks training, got a six pack but hit walls all over the place, and decided to put it on the back burner for a while.
- Went too low carb, and wasn’t able to burn fat fast enough for the heart rate I was putting out.
- Common mistakes I have experienced/see people doing
- 3 runs per week
- 1 interval run
- 1 tempo run
- 1 long run
- Bike rides
- Core workouts
- So, how did the race go?
- Fast Half (too fast)
- Slow middle, hit a wall around 25kms
- Last 7 km finished well
- Last 2 km I was finally overtaking others
- Nutrition for the race
- Pre-race almond butter packets and 1 coffee
- 4 scoops of low carb fuel by Endura
- 1 packet of almond butter mixed with MCT oil
- Water at most aid stations after 10kms
- A small amount of Endura at aid stations 30kms and 35kms
- 2 bottles of water and a high protein bar. (straight away)
- Home – scrambled eggs with butter, ½ avocado, and some camembert.
- Final Thoughts – Trickle in carbs using a Zach Bitter Approach.
- Fast half marathon, which felt easy.
- Burnt through too much glycogen, which resulted in a 25km wall
- Pace went from under 6min km to 6:30, 7, 7:30, at times 8mins
- Once I got to the 30km mark, I was able to get my heart rate down to Maff zone, sit in around 7:30min km
- Until the last 2kms which I finished in under 6min km.
- Final thoughts? A slower start, no crash, strong finish.
- What’s your favorite keto food? – Eggs
- What’s your favorite style of training run? ? Either a long run that pushes your limits or a short fast interval run which gives you a runner’s high
- What’s your least favorite keto food? – I don’t have one because I grew up in a large family, which means if you don’t eat it, there isn’t anything else. Brussels sprouts.
- What’s your least favorite training run? Tempo Runs at a high pace or one without an agreed-on finish.
