My body hurts. I’m moving slow. I’m thinking slower.
My time zone change experiment three weeks ago, where I slowly changed my body clock to match Australia, worked. I arrived in Australia in pretty good shape.
Coming home I went cold turkey. I did nothing to switch my body back…and now I feel it. My body is caught somewhere in between time zones.
But in the barn, the horses wait.
I’ve committed to training them.
So I forced myself out the door, one foot in front of the other.
I started slow and never changed speeds. But I did it.
Was my productivity high?
Did anyone break a sweat?
Do I feel better after doing it?
No. My body hurts. I’m tired.
Was it worth it?
Drip by drip the training adds up. Six months from now I’ll be glad I did it even though today I’m not as sure.
Think long term.
