Thread Starter 
For about 90 minutes last night and then six hours today I spread bark mulch at a commercial client. 11 yards to be exact, which is only half of what is needed. This a alot of mulch!! Today I used my ATV and dump yard which savs alot of time but -stiff alot of physical work A nice chunk of $$ in my pocket but I was very dirty and have over-exhausted!! I took a soak in the whirlpool tub and some pain meds for stiffness but Yikes I tired and stiffening up as the evening progresses. I did enjoy some wine though as a treat to myself!!

I would say you deserved the wine!! Here's hoping you aren't too sore in the AM!

Sounds like you really need that whirlpool! And you definitely deserved the wine.

...but if I read that right - you're only half done? If you're finishing up over the weekend, I hope you don't wake up hurting!!!!!!

I leave on vacation on Thursday so I will complete on Oct 9th. I did the harder part 1st this section of the building has only large trees and shrubs!

After a poor nites sleep Friday I was a glutton for punishment as I went up to the farm and helped my husband split firewood and tossed onto the truck and trailer!! I probably would have laid around doing not much of anything Sat afternoon.

When I woke up this morning (6:30 am thanks Bender!) I really am not stiff or sore at all.
Ok maybe my left big toe and Neil did drop a fairly large piece of wood on it.

He was complaining about being stiff and I told him to stop whining!

You are obviously really physically fit AND a glutton for punishment! I remember Gary chopping a cord of wood - that is a LOT of work! (Let alone tossing it into a truck!)

Sorry about the toe.

Sounds like you two should have done the whirlpool tub together - wine wouldn't have hurt either.

You sound a bit like me last week. I went to the gym for the first time in over a month and I think I overdid it a little. My entire body was in agony. But the more we do, the more we are capable of.

Wow, you are in good shape!

I didn't do anything quite so worthwhile but am rather stiff and a bit sore from golfing 36 holes per day for 4 days in a row. I haven't golfed since last summer so that's a bit much for the first time this year, but it was sooooo worth it.

Have you ever tried an epsom salts bath for sore muscles?

We actually don't split the wood by hand anymore. Me use an axe?? EEK TO SCARY!!
We have a gas powered wood splitter but we were splitting elm which is a bit stringy so you have to put the pieces apart. I let him unload the truck and trailer however as I had to work on processing the tomatoes Sunday morning!
