Stiff legged deadlifts

Silly me to think I was working my hamstrings doing curls. I did my first SLDL on Saturday -- 2 sets with just the bar and then I added 5 kg for the last set. Didn't feel like much at the time, I was concentrating on squeezing my hams and glutes like you're supposed to, rather than lifting with your back.
Ow. OW!! 25 freaking kilos and I swear to God, I still feel hobbled 48 hours later. This is ridiculous. How could SLDL with that light a weight be so much harder on the hamstrings than hamstring curls with 2x that weight?
Note to self: do not try new compound leg exercises the day before going on a hike.
