If you're eating enough food / nutrients and able to adapt, you should be good to go. Walking / jogging should be a breeze without too much effect on glycogen. Walking / jogging in a zone 1 heart rate while in ketosis is just about all fat-burning.

Here's a guy on a VLC diet working out without the extra carbs every 7 days. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjpxQJ0ykMc

http://www.amazon.com/The-Art-Science-Carbohydrate... (You'll want to really pay attention and listen to your body and take it real easy transitioning in. If you need more carbs, eat more carbs. If your sugar is crashing and you're hungry, eat some food. Pay close attention to potential electrolyte issues, with supplemented magnesium, as many potassium-rich foods & broths as you can squeeze in, and a healthy amount of salt & pepper.)
