A new work cycle at my main job began on Monday, and it isn’t an easy one. No, it’s not like the next one will be, but that’s not saying much. What complicated things a bit is that I had to start the cycle at one of my busier sites. Normally I start each cycle at the least busy of the work sites, as a way of easing into the process, but due to some operational issues that wasn’t possible this time. I suppose there’s something to be said for starting out with a challenge. I was able to finish by my usual quitting time each day, which means that I didn’t have to go through the trouble of getting last-minute overtime authorization. But no leaving early, not a chance.
That pulled muscle was quite painful on Monday, painful enough that I didn’t go to the gym or yoga even though I wasn’t scheduled at the Major Home Improvement Retailer. On Tuesday, I made a gym trip before going in for my 8 to midnight shift. Just machine based upper-body work, enough to keep me from regressing too much but that’s about it. The shift itself wasn’t bad, mostly freight packout in the inside garden shelves. That’s much easier than outside packout as the products are lighter. Still, between work and the earlier gym trip my side was quite painful on Wednesday, putting an end to this idea I had about going to yoga at 6:30. Dang.
