Oddly enough, after four days, I'm feeling it most in my legs. Specifically the big muscle at the back of the thigh. I didn't expect to be working those....

I've been better with my sledge than I have been with the diet. Something very satisifying about swinging that thing around!

definitely very satisfying. It's almost, for me, like shugging is the reward for No-Sing.....

LOL.... Feel the burn!
Those be yo hamstrings Bro..

If you are bending a lot at your waist, and those are tight anyway, then you will get extra pull on them everytime you bend down to shovel...
They attach at the hip and you are probably pulling the hip along as you bend down with your back...
Can you touch your toes when you sit on the floor with straight legs?
If not, then they're probably pretty tight..

I can't remember the last time I was able to touch my toes.

No, I really mean it! If I ever was able to, it was before my earliest conscious memories (about age three). That's over thirty years ago! <sigh> I'm getting old.

I love it. I think this is the first time I've ever really enjoyed excercise. I'm finally starting to understand people who say that it's addictive.

Thanks for the words of encouragement!

Oh yeah! It's addictive. So addictive. I actually *miss* doing it on weekends now!!!

Glad it's working out for you.

(who also cannot touch her toes and hasn't been able to in living memory either)
