Keep Hydrated During Marathon Training


Hi my Pals as you know the Mayorz Marathon is coming soon and I know you are all out working hard to get ready for it.


Today I would like to stress the impawtance of drinking plenty of fluids during your workouts. There are many ways to do this.



I am too short for this method, but I am told by other pals that it does work. Please be careful not to fall in.


With this method, you can get fresh water from home and have your trainer carry the bottle for when you need it.





I can tell your from experience that puddles(not Puddles) can be quite delicious. Be careful to sniff first to check for strange odors. My Mom does not approve of this, but I have a hard time passing one up.


These outdoor free water stations are nice also, but again, I am short so it works better for a larger pal.






I know these are often used for beer, but if you can find one that fits, water can be used and you will have it with you whenever you need it. 


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 I am sure you can come up with other ideas on your own, but the point remains, drink lots of fluids while training.


My sweet BFF and Pal Ruby will encourage another kind of liquid, but I recommend this after training. I can tell you from experience that you won't get much done after a few of these.





"What did we do last night??"

"Why does my head hurt??"

Here I am after a night of drinking with Ruby, so I suggest water for training, Rubyritas after training is done.

"Seriously Ruby, what was in that drink???"



I hope you found this information helpful. I will continue with lesson 2 of  foods to eat while training soon.

FFHT February 2015


Hi my Pals, I am joining another exciting  edition of F.F.H.T. with  Murphy and Stanley

Here is my story


The weather has been very bad here lately as I know it is for many of my pals out there. Mommy and I worry when Sissy and Boyfriend have to go out and drive in the bad weather. Recently there was an especially bad night. The wind was howling outside and the snow was coming down pretty heavy. I kept watch by my window so I could report back to Mommy.

Suddenly Sissy gets a message on her phone.


What is is Sissy?? Well it was great news, she found out she didn't have to go to work the next day. Yahoo for Sissy!! Then a few minutes later Boyfriend got a call on his phone and he didn't have to go to work either!!

Double Yahoo and Yipeeeeeeee! It was so much better than I could have ever imagined, because now we can relax and not worry about them driving the next day.


Mommy we can have fun tomorrow with everyone here. What shall we do???




Mommy and I baked a favorite breakfast treat called "French Breakfast Puffs". We all enjoyed them, watch movies and played games. It was the best day ever!! Snow is alright as long as my family is safe. That is my story and I hope you like it.


I hope you are all safe out there.

Preparation For Marathon Runners #1 by Chef Sasha


Hi my Pals and congratulations to all of preparing for the Mayorz Marathon on April 16th.

I will not be running because I have a heart condition, but I will be making sure that you are all properly nourished.


Today we will talk about some healthy food choices. First and foremost you need to keep hydrated. Drink plenty of fresh water. If you can strap a bottle on your back so you have it with you during training. You do not want to get dehydrated.


Here are two of the top foods for runners in training.


1. Bagel and Peanut Butter




For runners, food does more than just squelch hunger. It also fuels your muscles and keeps you healthy.

"Runners need quality foods that provide a 'spark plug' for their energy," says Nancy Clark, RD, MS, and author of the Food Guide for Marathoners.

If you're a morning runner, you know it can be tough to hit the road on an empty stomach. It's been several hours since your last meal the night before, and your energy stores are low. Eating a 100- to 300-calorie snack before your morning run can give you energy and staying power, says Clark. This quick-and-easy snack has carbs and protein, plus it's easy to digest.

2. Banana




Bananas


If you need a carb-packed energy-booster before an afternoon run, it's hard to go wrong with a banana. A bonus: Bananas contain loads of potassium, which regulates blood pressure and reduces the risk of stroke.



Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

10 oz skim or soy milk

1 TBSP. peanut butter

1 medium banana

Put all ingredients in a blender. If you want it thicker add 4 or 5 ice cubes.

You could also freeze this and pupsicles out of it.


Servings Per Recipe: 1
PER SERVING: 303 cal., 9 g total fat (2 g sat. fat), 45 g carb. (4 g fiber), 16 g pro. 


I hope this will help you. My next lesson will include berries and yogurt.


Keep up the good work and keep drinking water!!!

Brush My Teeth Day 2015


Hi my Pals, today I am joining  Murphy and Stanley   for "Brush My Teeth Day" for Dental Health Month

Here is a little history of my dental hygiene




Note the tooth brush waiting for me when I wake up.


What Mom?? I don't feel like brushing my teeth yet, I am tired.



Ok I gave in and brushed my teeth. This is an old video and a little dark, but I hope you get the idea.

I do like dental hygiene, but over the years my methods have changed.


These are my favorites from Chewy.com



Mommy, no messing around, now please give it to me!!


As you can see, I am so fast with taking it that Mommy couldn't even take a picture.


Here I am after a good dental chew.

Smile!!!!!

Winter and Summer


Hi my Pals and I hope you all had a nice weekend. We had a nice one, but I am kind of tired of the cold and snows here.

Mommy is too so she did something fun for me.


Mommy it's too cold, lets go back inside. Look even the penguins are buried in snow. "Sasha I have a fun treat for you that will remind you of summer."

Mommy lets go in!!


Look she gave me an ice cream cone, one of my favorite treats and it does make me think of summer and trips to Dairy Queen. 

Thanks Mommy, now lets snuggles some more until that snow goes away for good.



I hope you are keeping warm.

Special Cards and a Mystery


Hi my Pals, in all the excitement of the Heart 2 Heart Dance, I forgot to show you some special  cards I got.


Thank you Bilbo for the most wonderful evening at the dance. I have been sleeping with this card next to me.


Bilbo also sent me this one on Daisy's blog, isn't is beautiful. I am so lucky


This is from my best friend in the whole world Tweedles. She made this just for me!!
I am a lucky pal.


Mommy was kind of sad for Valentines Day this year, but a friend of hers sent her these beautiful flowers which made her happy. My Sissy also got her a box of chocolate covered strawberries, but they were gone before she got a picture.


Look I ate a smurf!!

Not really, I will tell you more about this next time.

Try and guess what I did.

Bored and Practicing Flashy Beast Avoidance


Hi my Pals, it has been sooooooooo cold here. Mommy and I do a lot of snuggling. I take my job of keeping her warm very seriously. We do play in between and of course share snacks.


As you can see she caught me off guard with the flashy beast and got me. Notice that it looks like I only have one arm.



Catch me once, shame on her, catch me twice, shame on me. She won't catch me twice EVER!!
Where is my arm????




Notice
Our great pal, Judge Frankie Furter gave me a great idea. Starting in March I will have a weekly post with a nutrition foodable suggestion to help all the athletes prep for the Mayorz Marathon on April 16th. I will be providing a healthy menu and fresh water all day.
