Ketosis and improved Aerobic Capacity and Muscular Endurance
Has anyone noticed improvement in aerobic performance or muscular endurance while in Ketosis? This link to a very detailed article on the subject suggests this should be the case -

Personally I have experienced this somewhat, but it took about 3 weeks before the impact kicked in and I noticed a difference in my runs and body weight workouts.
My experience with ketosis - loss of intensity
I was strict paleo for about 4 months (about 30-60 carbs daily) and lost about 30 pounds during that span. On the weekends I enjoy play racquetball and noticed I didn't have quite the intensity while playing that I've been accustomed to. Recently I've been cheating on my paleo diet (some days 300+ carbs) and have gained the intensity back on my racquetball days. Is this because of ketosis? Can I have intensity without glycogen in my muscle cells? Can I be in ketosis and still have intensity while working out and playing sports? Should I eat a sweet potato before playing? I want to stay in ketosis and keep losing weight but also have fun with intensity.
