Today I did not go to agility class. Things have been stressful with the broken dh and even after a 3-day weekend I needed a mental health day. So, the boys and I went for a hike at Borderland State Park about 10 minutes from my house.
I figured the hike would help me decompress and start to get Bug back in shape. Due to his injury a lot of the muscle he had formed got soft. We did 5 minutes of flat walking, 25 minutes of hill/rocky hiking, 15 minutes of flat walking. Then I stretched the Bug in the parking lot. More massage to come tonight.
Due to the uneven ground surface, hiking is a great way to build core muscles up. We are scheduled to see the chiropractor tomorrow night and it will be interesting to see how she thinks Bug feels after herding and hiking.
