Well done – one tip though, if your upper back is hurting either the height of the work was too high, or your technique was a little off. Try to think of the motion as coming from the hips, using your legs for a lot of the power, while your arms provide the guidance. The tip about using a #7 is a good one, but a bigger plane will absolutely thrash you if you are not using the big muscles of the core body.
