I'm closer in age to my 60s than I am to my college years.

I work on bicycles a lot in my garage. Usually I'm cleaning gears or whatever and I sit on the ground, kind of hunched over. I have a seat and a little table but for some reason I just gravitate towards sitting on the concrete. Anyway, last week I was sitting and I felt a twinge in my leg, kind of like when a tendon gets caught and goes *twang*, but I wasn't moving anything so I thought that was weird. I stand up a little while later and my left cheek and the backside of my leg are numb. Whatevs, it's what happens when your leg goes to sleep so I didn't think anything of it.

Well, it's been numb ever since and it's a little freaky to have half my leg numb all the time. I've been using the seat ever since and when I play Lego with my son I sit on my knees instead because whatever nerve I pinched, I don't want to make it worse.

This is an ongoing issue from me. Apart from targeted foam roller stuff (or strat's mighty yoga), there's a real simple stretch I do multiple times a day: Imagine you are trying to sit indian style, but you're standing up. That is, cross one leg (the leg that has the painful hip) over your other knee, then use your straight leg to crouch straight down (I usually brace my arms on something like a counter); it should open up the hip that is bothering you.

I'll try that out. I know that as I'm on the downward side of the hill I need to stretch more but my brain still thinks I'm 20-something so it says ain't no one got time for that and off I go.

Which can be a little bit more accessible as youre not balancing on one leg (though the balancing on one leg thing will be great for strengthening the outer hip of the balancing leg (which can also help tight hips)

Tom Cruise is older now than Wilford Brimley was when he made Cocoon.

Yeah, I do the one is Strat's pic too, after a lengthy foam roller session. What the heck is that called again? Pigeon pose?

My body officially can’t take half assing my way through 90 minutes of pickup basketball every other week. Kill me now I can barely walk.

When I was a kid The Wizard of Oz seemed like a really old movie.
Like kids today probably think of the original Star Wars.
