FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 2:24 Rest is NOT a “Bad” Word

Labrador Lesson from FitLabPGH:

Rest Is Not a “Bad” Word.

Rest has 4 letters, but it’s NOT a “bad” word. Rest and recovery are essential to an active, healthy lifestyle. Make time to rest. Enjoy your rest days without guilt. Your rest days will allow you to move more in the future. Last Wednesday, the labs enjoyed a rest day, complete with oatmeal baths at the Tractor Supply “spa.” They resumed their regular movement routine on Thursday, clean and energized.

Move more. Move often. Incorporate rest and recovery into your movement routine.

FitLabPGH Lab Lessons 26:23 “Rest” Is Not a 4-Letter Word

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.
