Time Change

No, I'm not talking about day light savings, although that time change messes with me as well. Today is day 1 of my new life as a second shift employee. This is actually something I have wanted for most of my professional life, and here I sit today. It's 10:30 and I'm having breakfast in my backyard with the sun shining on my back. We'll see how happy I am at 10pm just leaving work for the day but so far so good. For this to work I won't be getting up at 5am for a workout any longer. Today I was in the pool for 9, and it felt very odd. Even on the weekends a 9am workout seems too late for me. I will admit I'm a tad worried for when I am allowed to return to my running shoes, the weather is typically better for runners in the early morning hours rather than mid morning or even afternoon. Running after work doesn't make sense, even for me it would be too late. As odd as this feels today, I'm trying to picture it with a little one and get even more concerned. Rather than overwhelm myself I'll focus on the here and now.

Yards swam today: 1650
