Labrador Lesson for 6/23/23:
“Rest” is not a 4-letter word.
As Labradors, we like to move every day. Our humans mix in longer and shorter movement sessions, but after 7-10 days of walking/hiking/running, we’re due for a rest day. We may get a bit stir crazy by the end of that rest day, but our humans tell us that regular rest days reduce our risk of injury and help us keep moving throughout our lives.
Whether you’re a human or a dog, remember that Rest is not a 4-letter word. Design a movement plan that incorporates rest and includes activities you enjoy. Move more. Move often. Make time for rest and recovery.
