My running has been slow lately. I can barely break 30 minutes for a 5K, hen I used to run one in 26-27 minutes. While I am not trying to focus on speed this year, I still want to be a little faster.
In addition to my runs being slow, they also have been low energy. I attribute this to working nights, as I get home around 1 am and don’t fall asleep to about 2 am. This would not be such an issue if I didn’t have a little five year old waking me between 6 and 7 am.
I was excited to picked to be an X2Performance Ambassador, especially when I read that it provides increased energy, enhanced performance and improved recovery. My only concern was the taste, my taste buds are very sensitive and usually these types of products don’t agree with them.
In preparation for “testing” out the X2Performance, I ran a 5K route near my house as fast as I possibly could run. Fours days later, I repeated the same route with the same intention, only this time I drank the X2Performance on an empty stomach thirty minutes prior to my run. Check out the result below:
I thought the results were pretty amazing! I actually shaved 31 seconds per mile off my average time! I felt energized throughout the entire run and the extra speed actually did not feel much harder than the first run. I was extremely excited about the results!!!
As far as the product itself goes, the taste was tolerable. It was a little sweet and sour, I wouldn’t say I loved it, but I would drink it again, and I have. I usually dislike these types of products because my heart gets racy and I get nauseous, but with X2Performance I did not get any of these side effects, just pure energy.
Happy Friday!!! I know I have been pretty silent over here all week, but I have been busy with school. I am in the last few weeks of two classes and have been bombarded with discussions and term papers. Since I am headed to Florida next Friday, I need to have all my school work […]
Lately, I have not been super motivated to eat clean, despite participating in a challenge with my co-workers that requires a weekly weigh in (which I forgot to do this morning). Yesterday I had a dressing room meltdown (more on that to come later this week) and it made me realize that if I want […]
