Muscle ache or muscle pain?

I had a little project to add chipping stones in front of the house because some parts turn mushy due to rain. To repair the muddiest parts, what I normally do is to add chipping stones with soils. I bought the chipping stones on Saturday, and started to add it to various parts that needed to be repaired. The process was strenuous. I had muscle aches especially on my legs and back. I have to admit that I am not young but still, I am the youngest in the household at the moment.

I was thinking to pay someone to do it, but I do not know anyone who is willing to do such strenuous task. So, I decided to do it by myself. I took lots of breaks, just to make sure that I was not pushing myself too hard. Alhamdulillah, after a few days and sleepless nights, I managed to complete my little project within a week. I will remember the muscle aches that I felt as the aftermath of the little project every time I see someone doing any strenuous job despite rain or shine.
