I finished with the pine and fir trees (link
) four days ago. It was a brutal, long-winded, dehydrating, sun-burning week. The top of my head is peeling, but I got all the slash piles burned before the summer burn ban took effect.
It was difficult and physical but not in an exercise way. More like a long march through a swamp - eventually you get exhausted, but it's not good exercise.
Anyway, it's done (except for cutting the trunks into rounds for firewood) and life is looking up a bit right now.
So tonight I got back to it for the first time in a while, and let's just say I'm not where I was in mid-March.
2 flights of stairs, 20 trips up and down.
Time 12:15 Heart rate 153.
Felt a little slow and winded on the stairs, so I quit that and took a brisk walk
1.4 miles, 24 minutes. Avg speed 3.5 mph.
Good enough for now.
