been forever since I used this forum as I unfortunately fell out of love with running and had been going through a rough patch in my life over the last 6-12 months. Thankfully things are on the up and thus I start a new job on Monday! I will be working 4 on 4 off 12 hour shifts 7am-7pm and then 7pm-7am.
So I am just starting to get my running back up and currently I am doing 2-3 miles 3 times a week and easing myself back in. I am thinking about how free these shifts will leave me to train. I'm thinking of doing some half marathons next year and from what I've seen in training plans it is easily doable. Some 5/6 mile runs midweek with something a little bit longer at the weekends, the same applies for me just adjusted to when I will actually be at work as I will work weekends too.
Basically does anyone have any advice, tips or tricks on how they managed their training when working such shift patterns and how they still continued to push themselves (as I eventually plan on moving into triathlon) and how they managed their nutrition and continued to (try) and eat healthy.
Thanks all in advance!
