I don't mind the exercise one bit. But as I find myself getting older, I can't do strenuous repetitive physical tasks such as splitting and stacking wood day after day like I could ten years ago. Sitting at a computer all day for my job doesn't help much either.
I hear ya. I'm 47 and also sit at a computer all day. I definitely don't have the ambition or stamina I used to, but once I get out there I'm usually good. I like the cutting/bucking and hauling it back. It's the splitting/stacking I don't really care for. When it comes time for splitting/stacking, once the snow is gone, I do that 6-8 hours a day just on weekends until I'm done. The problem is the more I cut/haul, the more I have to split/stack.
