Having not noticeably had ketone-smelling breath, I'm not sure whether I have adapted or not. I've been drinking a lot of coffee so it could be hard to tell whether my breath is that sort of smelly through the coffee smell. And that's not the be all and end all of it either, so I have no idea. The only real way to find out is have a gas analysis test.
|Possibly a problematic amount of alcohol over the 2.25 weeks in there for adaptation?|
This weekend, however, I have to drag myself around a half marathon in an indeterminate fuelling state. This will be... interesting. My pace has been low since I started back after surgery and it's not really got any better in the last couple of weeks. The longest I've run for is 90 minutes and that was 2 weeks ago. I'm thinking I'll not be breaking any PBs on Sunday but I'm more worried that I may actually bonk if I'm not adapted enough yet. And that would be very miserable indeed as I wouldn't want to crack and eat a banana; the insulin spike would strike fear into me. However, if I make it around the course and I don't bonk, that would be rather a successful outcome indeed. We shall see!
