Thanks so much for the kind words Duke.

I love my silly hobby. So much of what we do in our everyday lives is so sedentary. Most of us on here are serious about our fitness, but there's just something about physical labor that is the most rewarding met-con. If that makes any sense?

My event training is great fitness. But the wood gathering and "wood runs" as I call them are almost debilitating. I had envisioned chopping when I got home from a wood run last night, but it was all I could do to stagger into the house, shower, eat and collapse on the couch beside my ailing wife and incredibly supportive grey bearded black lab.

Nothing like a good bit of hard physical work to make one feel human. Enjoyable. Rewarding. And fun in a sick sadistic way.

All the best,

Keep up the good work.

Lifting heavy stuff is fun and relative......
