This is my first post after joining today.
I have returned to running (12 months now) after a decade break and am wondering why it took me so long to get back into it. My goal is to build up to a half marathon and then marathon. I like to have a bit of structure and am looking at programs. Only hassle is i am a shift worker who works 12 hour shifts which can be all over the place. Does anyone know of a 'flexible" type program which can be fitted around shift work?
I have done shift work and find it really hard on my body. Im hoping you are better at it than me!
I think you would just need to be more flexible (rather than find a flexible program),ie work it around how you are feeling and rearrange it so that your important sessions dont coincide with shift change etc. If you know from week to week what shifts you will be doing you could re-arrange a program so you can fit all the sessions around your shifts.
There are others on CR that do shift work so they may be able to offer advice.
Good luck with it all.
