I’ve been keto since last July (with an ugly little binge in Dec). I herniated a disc last May and have been trying to rehab it ever since. I finally had a cortisone shot about a month ago and am pain-free. I started strength training again this week and decided to walk on the treadmill today.
After about 10 minutes of gradually increasing the pace, I felt like running. So I did thinking I’d run a minute or two then back to walking. I’m a regular walker and occasional runner but haven’t run since last spring. Lo’ and behold, I was still running 12 minutes later. I still can’t believe it. Neither my legs nor my lungs were screaming at me like I expected. And I think I could have kept going but I had to get ready for work. Woot!
