Green Tea X50

Green Tea still being top of most people’s healthy drink list .  I am not sure about you but I physically cannot stomach Green Tea, the taste is well, to be polite, awful.  I have tried the ready flavoured, the flavour yourself and plain and no matter how much I tried to convince myself they still tasted awful.

Green Tea X50 from Tribeca Health is something totally different.  Available in 9 different flavours: Mango, Peach, Raspberry, Lemon and Ginger, Tropical, Passionfruit, Original, Pina Colada and Chocolate there really is something to suit everyone’s taste buds.  Supplied in single serving sachets of powder which you simply add to chilled water and shake it could not be more convenient.

Each serving of X50 has the polyphenol equivalent of up to 20 cups of regular green tea, it is gluten free and vegan friendly.  Containing electrolytes and essential amino acids and vitamin C, X50 is the perfect after workout drink repairing your body efficiently, perfect for busy lifestyles on the go.

Helping you along with any detox, increasing your energy and metabolism, burning fat, and aiding digestion the benefits from these little sachets are immense.  Just 1 a day and you will feel amazing and containing only 10 calories per sachet where can you go wrong?

Originally lauched and widely available in Australian Health Clubs and Spas X50 was introduced to me by my best friend, who on a visit was drinking this very odd looking liquid, on questioning what it was she promptly disappeared to mix me my own little cocktail and then my love for it started.  I cannot believe that the dreaded Green Tea is the main make up of this drink as it tastes so good and when you put that with the massive health benefits X50 has become part of my every day routine.

For the last year or so my friend has shipped X50 to me, but now thankfully it is available to order within the UK so gone are my huge shipping costs.

DAY 1 Marathon Training


​DAY 1 kicks off my marathon training. I simply can’t believe this day is here.  6 months ago I sat in a Marathon training session with Alzheimer’s Society in London and was told it was way to early to start training and I had to wait until June to begin. 

It felt like an age away but now here it is. 😨😨 Todays training involved a 4am HIIT session (which  included the impossible 2 Point plank) followed by a very windy cycle to work. Praying it dies down for my journey home! 

Aldridge Running Club 10k

What a great event. 

Seeing things from the other side as a Marshall was awesome.

The frontrunner went past my station 6k into the run in a time of 17.19 minutes. He finished in just over 32 minutes!!! Each and every runner put their heart and soul into this race, the final finisher especially, injured and struggling to walk let alone run, but determined to get to that finish line on her own was simply inspirational. 

The bobsled team running on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust in memory of Stephen Sutton work so hard raising money at these events and always bring it on with a smile and enthusiasm. 

I cannot wait to do this route, we as a club are not allowed to take part in our own event but run it ourselves during club on Tuesday evening. 

I am so proud to be part of Aldridge Running Club.
