The g/f finally told me I had to clean out the back bedroom, so I went out and bought a 6x8 arrow metal shed( I don't have the room in my yard some of you do) so it took me 6 days to put it together, I only have split days off so that didn't help, but i can remember throwing one of these up in two days. Now I am building shelf's for it I still have all the tools from my contracting days but damn the mind works great for the measurements and all, but the body doesn't seem to handle the pace I want to set to get it done. The mind still thinks I am 25 where the body tells me I am definitely over 50. It does not help that it is a 100 degrees out side either.

Yeah, my mind tries to write checks that my body isn't interested in cashing.  Take it easy and don't over do it in the heat!  Take regular breaks and stay hydrated.

I had to help a friend lay out a couple of new valleys for an addition the other day. I used to do this running on autopilot, but it took me an hour just to remember how it's done🙁

Can't wait for the next time someone asks me to lay out a staircase.

I enjoy the work more than I did, and take the time to admire said work as I go. And admire the birds, and the trees, and life in general.  It is not a race.

What Jim says, learn to take breaks - it'll still be there 10 minutes from now.

@ over 65, no bladder (cancer) type 2 diabetic & a few other issues, I spend 8-12 hours outside almost every day doing something. My 62 year old wife & I grow a large garden & share with the older folks in the neighborhood. Yesterday it took 2 hours to gather the garden & blueberry. 93° with 107 heat index. We did this from 2-4 in the afternoon. Being a workaholic when younger it seems like I'm not getting much done but actually do. 

It's definitely mind over body. I feel I need to push my feeble body to the limit t keep it usable. Also the mind needs a great lot of exercise. I restore/refurbish motorcycles, antique tractors & outboard motors as well as my gpa's. Most of which are winter projects. We must keep both mind & body in working order.

If it's been done before, I can do it. Maybe not as good as some, but I can do it.

I find that projects on the go keep the wheels turning, I recently completed a resto on a glass/wood washboard,(a first)redid the art,cleaned up the wood and tightened it up,this is in between GPAs,mowing,starting and running some old cars in between  part-time gigs etc, long as the knees and hips are good, As those philosophers from the 70s used to sing,"Truckin"

I know the feeling, my mind keeps making promises that my body can’t keep.  I’m nudging 68, no medical problems and take no meds.  My father is the same, he’s near 92 and has never taken any meds.  As he says “your health is your wealth” and I gotta agree.
We just gotta take our time now.

Oldbiker I feel the same way during the winter I rebuild lawnmower and rototiller engines, and grow a Farley descent size garden for the land that I have, been giving away tomatoes a zucchinis like crazy next are the eggplants and peppers, I still push it as far as I can but with working 40 a week and the chores on my days off it gets a little much at times, still have another nine years before I retire, Unless my investments work out then I will retire next year.

I am currently on a fishing vacation in the Gulf of Mexico. I have been coming here all my life on these vacations. Now at 46 it sure is more of a chore than when I was in my 20’s.  Out at sea with 100 degree temps and the humidity is rough on a old man lol. Several  years ago we took my grandpa out for his last trip and he was in his 70s. It didn’t seem to bother him much but I don’t know if I will be able to do it when I’m that old.

not looking for any more Bday gpas. Honestly, if you have a 10-72 don’t let me know about it.
