    I work nights and work out about 45 minutes after I wake up.

    Just do it whenever you feel you have the most energy to, and when it's the most convenient. It's not really that important.

    Sucks finding a place to eat that late. Bag lunch.

    That kind of shift sucks, period, for me. I did it for 2 weeks. Never again. Though I worked 160 hours those 2 weeks, and drove an hour and back every day.

    I was too exhausted to do anything those two weeks. Made good money, but it wasn't worth it.

    Wait... What was the topic?

    Oh, it doesn't matter. I would do it when I get home for the night, but that's my preference.
