Well our mind still thinks it's 25 and tells our body yeah you can do it, and off we go, then reality gives us one upside the head, or knees ,or back, or etc. an oldtimer told me two things when I started that I often revisit, one: "when you're dumb you suffer, strive not to suffer. Two: Don't worry kid what you don't have in your head you have in your feet, just realize you'll come full circle it will be in your head, you'll forget it and your feet will be called upon once again to carry the load, trouble is your old and your feet will be tired.
Can't describe getting older to where one gets the real sense of it,you can try, but all the describing others did cannot prepare you for experiencing it, said here before, getting older is not for sissy's and it's a full time commitment.
Be safe , know your limitations, it's in your head ( somewhere) be the older, wiser guy on the ground directing the work, indeed let the kids do it.
