It's a funny thing about weight lifting, you gain strength by doing it. But the real fun is when I actually notice it!
This past weekend I decided it was finally time to load up the firewood hoppers inside the house. This involves loading up on firewood, carrying it into the house and putting it into the hopper. Most years my arms were sore afterwards, what with loading up one arm with quite a few logs.
This year, not a problem. It was easy, and I never tired. I like it when I realize how much more fit I've become.
