adjusting to new work schedule

I've been waking up 2 hours consistently earlier for about a month and I finally feel energetic today after weeks of lethargy. It's a wonderful feeling...
I'm not waking up terribly early at all (7am) but I am not a morning person, so it's been a bit of an adjustment.

Does anyone else find that it takes that long to adjust to a new schedule?

Re: adjusting to new work schedule

I was never a morning person either, but for work purposes I had to wake up by 530 AM M-F for 2 years. Since it became such a habitual part of my daily life for so long it turned me into a morning person. 3 years later I still wake up by 730 AM most days with a lot of energy. If I sleep in til 9 or after I feel like a slug haha. It's nice though, you can get a lot accomplished.

Re: adjusting to new work schedule

I go thru this when I deploy and change time zones/shifts alot. It honestly takes me close to 1 month for my body to get truly in sync. I have learned not to push my training to hard and just listen to my body more rather than trying to beast thru it.

Re: adjusting to new work schedule

I go through this every four weeks: days to graves to swing shift. My days off rotate also so some shift changes are no problem. I have learned not to push my workouts on shift change weekend. I just listen to my body rather than trying to battle through the WOD
