Raking leaves kicked my butt

More evidence for the "change your workout every so often--keep your body guessing" campaign!
I am stiff and sore this morning! Yay! Raking leaves really did a number on my hamstrings and glutes. And I work out--hard--on the elliptical for 60 minutes 2-3 times a week! And yet, some gardening worked my muscles to the point of (good) pain.
I'm happy about this because the pain will go away, but the benefits will stick around. I'm getting stronger and fitter. And the next round of leaf raking is just a few days away, thanks to this rain. Yay! More opportunities to work out.
Put away those leaf blowers! Fall clean-up is a great opportunity to get some great exercise and help you reach your goals.
