man, i was an infantryman in some capacity or form for my entire career. so running hiking and doing all kinds of physical activities was daily for me and it had a hell of an impact on my training. that and being in the heat day in and day out. what i found is that i had to get up super early and get in to train before i had to check in at work. that way it didnt affect my training for the day. if i had unit functions or training then i would go during lunch to train on some days. it didnt take me long to figure out that training at the end of the day was a no go because a combo of eating 5-7 meals and being in the heat made evening training a difficult feat in itself. i made progress during my career and did very well competing but nowhere near what i have been able to since retiring.
you have to be a seriously motivated person to train and eat while working a physically demanding job. cool thing is their really isnt a huge need to do extra cardio and stuff because of the work you do. diet is one of the biggest challenges to, and bars and shakes w/ oats mixed in where a godsend for me to hit numbers when super busy but i always carried a cooler full of my whole food meals. only opting for the other in a serious pinch
