Welcome to the list and the thread, PolarAK — or should I call you TropicTX?
I’m just one week into my SRT and two into ADT, so I’m speaking only with limited experience. That said, here goes:
I’m working a desk job full time. No SEs, no fatigue, even late in the day. I’m expecting that to change once the T levels crash and radiation damage accumulates. I’m working out at a gym daily to fight it off. But so far, so good.
I have RT first thing in the morning, then the gym, get to the office around 10. I like having tx over and done with before work. Also, it happens to help me avoid rush hour traffic. I agree with you that traffic’s an important consideration. I’m fortunate to have a job with flexible hours. If I need to work late or on the weekend to finish a project, I will. The RT techs say if later I want to change to afternoon tx, they can accommodate me. So I’m playing it by ear.
