Thanks for all the information, Deb!

It is starting to feel better, with the slow, mindful movements. As you suggest, though, I'll have it looked at sometime soon. Luckily, I'm in grad school and most of this stuff is free!

Have a great day!

Thanks everyone! I went back at it this morning after about a week's rest, and took it slow and easy, just as you guys said. I changed up my rep counts, too (ie, only 25 shoveling motions on the left, but staying at 50 on the right), so that any time something began to hurt, I stopped on that side. ...

One other quote from that same Outside Magazine article, that might be useful advice when it comes to saving your back: "As long as you concentrate on the following, you can't go wrong," says Chuck Wolf, manager for human performance at the USA Triathlon National Training Center.

Shovelglove research, and a New exercise

This is my second week of shugging, and it's great. I went out last week and got me a 10 pounder, then wrapped it in an old pair of jeans that I've long "outgrown" (exta motivation, you see!) After a failed initial attempt at 14 minutes (my but it HAS been a while), I backed off to 10 minutes a sess...
