My two little puppies are great, but I would love a third – BIG – dog! I always imagine running with a big dog. How fun would that be?
I’ve been trying to build up James’s endurance for the last few weeks. Kind of like Couch to 5K for humans. We’re doing the Puppy Bed to 5K.
I’ve been taking him on fast-paced 1.5 mile walks, and today we built up to a 2.0 mile walk with minimal breaks for sniffing and peeing.
I rocked my new “Eh?” shirt (from Angela, who’s at Universal Studios for the day). A creepy man rolled down his car window and screamed, “Ehhhhhh!" as we walked by. Thaaaaanks, creeper. Thanks.
I really do think James could work up to a 2.0 mile run over time. He might need to take a few walking breaks, but sometimes, I do too! 🙂
Before our walk, I made pancakes and smoothies for our guests. My serving of buckwheat pancakes, strawberries, and syrup:
Nothing like pancakes on a Saturday morning!
And after the walk, I made a simple green monster, which contained 1 cup almond breeze, 1/2 a banana, and 2 cups raw spinach. My energy levels are SKY HIGH since I started to drink these regularly. Yay for GREENS!
The secret to using 1/2 a banana and saving the other half without it spoiling? Keep it in the peel, put in a plastic bag, and store in the fridge.
I use 1/2 a banana in many smoothies just because I use banana for a lot of other meals – oatmeal, granola and yogurt, snacks – and I don’t want to OD on bananas! A little banana sweetness goes a lot way, especially in green monsters.
I’m going to take a nap and then have a real lunch. The Husband and I were up until 2 AM playing on our respective iPhones (we just got them yesterday, and I’m already hooked!). We may never actually speak to one another again. We’re just going to communicate via text message. :)
VERY exciting evening planned, too!
Do you work out with your dog?
LOVE your post!! I think I will start training my pup so he can start running some short runs with me! Also, love the green monster segment! I NEED to start making these. What better day then today ?!
