So, I just graduated from grad school. Yay! My new job starts tomorrow, and I'm trying to figure out my new training schedule, and my big problem is gym time.
See, for four years I had the flexible grad student schedule. Almost everybody slept until 10, so I was free to hit the gym at 8:30 and get in when everybody else did and avoid the crowds, and the job I had before then had its own gym which was never crowded. So now I'm trying to avoid the crowds of normal gym-time AND the New Year's Resolutioners . The gym is NOT between my place and work, and fighting Austin traffic to get in there and back in the morning sounds less than relaxing. It is a 24-hour gym, though, so I can do things like take a nap when I get home and go to the gym later that night. (It also lets me get a quick weights workout without sacrificing daylight riding time. Hooray!)
Anybody else have nonstandard gym schedules?
 Nothing against them personally, it's just that since they're a statistical bump, the gym knows they don't represent a lasting population, so there's just not enough space for a month or two until the crowds thin.
