Me too!. I feel my 57 years today. Took the truck up in the woods with the new spring hangers and shackle and cut down enough lethargic maples and cherrys to fill the bed up with logs..... Winter is comin.

I felt all of that and more yesterday. I way over did the fighting Saturday. Practicing a new ending for our war. It involves a very hard core one on one glave battle between myself and another guy. I hurt all over and spent most of my day doing nothing.

Doing that now. Come morning it'* coffee, aspirin, and do it again. Piling it up gives me incentive as it gets bigger and bigger. I usually amass 10 full cords before I borrow a friends 35 ton splitter for a couple days.

I've found I feel about 30 on the weekends, and fight 20 year olds and beat them all day long. Come Monday, I no longer feel 30, I feel a bit closer to 90. A lot of moaning and groaning. Takes me a few days to recover and do it all over again.

It wont be used till next year. I am always a year ahead of myself. And always late in getting it in. But a must do. Late winter/early spring for me is Maple tapping season and my boat and bike fill most of the summer. School starting and the crisp mornings like today reset my leisurely summer pace. Hard long winters have gotten me into "green" wood, It will burn but a pain to keep going.

Now that looks like a workout. My wood splitting generally involves a can of beer and some form of engine attached to a hydrolic arm.
