I work purely 8hrs night shift and training for my 3rd IM.
when do you guys train and can you sleep properly during the day?
How many hours are you guys training? How many hours do you guys sleep?
thanks!

i work a weird schedule... i work 14 days at work (12 hour shifts) on a remote location away from home then 14 days at home.

my first week at work is nights then swap over to days.

at work i typically can get in at the most a couple of hours for training / exercise per day, i try to work out 6 days a week.

at home it’s about the same due to life obligations.

i probably end up netting around 10-12 hours a week on a good week.

2019 Schedule: Ironman 70.3 Texas April 7...

On my current schedule I work two weeks in / two weeks out type schedule as well. I fly up to work on an 8 hour shift and can train up to 3 hours this day. Then I work 6x10 hour night shifts. I have one day off and then 6x10 hour day shifts. Then fly home the next day. On the 10 hour shifts max I can handle is 3 hours since I try to get a minimum of 9-10 hours sleep. On the two weeks out I can handle as much training as the coach throws at me. Currently training for IM #5&6 for 2019 and right now I'm at ~14 hours per week and building.

2019 = #5 IM Canada / #6 IM Florida 2020 = #7 IM St. George / #8 IM Louisville
