After an easy day off on Friday, it was back to full 8-hour shifts at the Major Home Improvement Retailer on both Saturday and Sunday. Neither one was a terribly difficult shift, as these things go, they were just long. Not having worked many 8’s recently, I had forgotten just how long. Not merely twice as long as a 4-hour shift, but more like three times as long. At least it sure seems that way. Near the end of Saturday’s shift, the first shipment of Christmas trees arrived. Yes, it’s still a long way to Christmas, how the trees are supposed to last that long … well, it’s not my job to ask why.
I made two gym trips, during the late afternoon on Friday and around noon before my Sunday MHIR shift. It does look as if I’m getting back into a rhythm. One thing that might be helping is this new supplement I’ve been taking, NO2 (nitric oxide). While some of the claims are exaggerated, which is true for most supplements, I do think it help with post-workout recovery. That’s fine by me.
