I'm not good with adjusting to schedule changes. Saturday, my work schedule changed from starting at 7:30, to starting at 7:00. This may not seem like much, and over all, I like the idea of getting off work a half an hour earlier, but it puts me in a dilemma. The dilemma is when to write and when to get my exercise in. About a year ago, we changed from an 8:00 starting time to a 7:30 starting time, and I still haven't fully adjusted, and now, I have to adjust again. I do my best writing in the morning, mainly because there are too many distractions for me when it comes to writing in the evening. On the other hand, going to the gym after work is harder, because sometimes I work overtime and the need to get home outweighs staying until 6:00 at the gym to complete a workout.
My workout is generally completed in an hour, but there is drive
time, and doing it after work puts me in the middle of rush hour
traffic trying to get home. I'm thinking that I'm going to end up
splitting my workout and running in the morning (I will have to
anyway once it gets hot), and then doing my strength training after
work. Running in the morning will still allow me to write for a
while, so I think that may be the best possible solution. I'll need
to be disciplined to do it, especially since I will need to get up at
a consistent time, but that will be possible. The only thing I worry
about is running in the dark. I haven't done that for years, and
don't have the reflective gear for it. Of course, that can be easily
So there will be that, and I'll also try to get some cooperation
around here with doing some writing at night. My computer just may
have to be off-limits to the grandkids and others unless I'm watching
a game or movie, or playing a board game with Ann. Of course, this
time of year brings a number of things that take away time that could
be used for writing—yard work that must be done, and of course the
outdoorsy stuff that I always do and that nearly always takes
I'm glad my time dilemmas are only between things I want
todo and not between things that I have to do.
