That's been my routine for 17 years, I have three horses on DIY. Only difference is I leave the yard at 7.15am and start work at 8am.
I muck out all stables in the morning, do hays and waters then I can ride at least two at night.
Its a 12 minute round trip to the field so I lead all three together. I change rugs twice a day. I can do the lot in 45 minutes.
I think you're mental but then again I'd skip going to the gym and would have morning jobs done in half the time, so could get up slightly later and go to bed earlier!

You guys are all super stars ! Your dedication is commendable
DIY, shift work, OH, 2 horses (one older stallion, one nearing 2 year old), long walk to field with the youngster (no 24/7 turnout in winter damn it) , 2 young children, all the chores and general chaos that goes along with that lot...
Winter is my enemy - up either 5.10am or 6am depending, sometimes later depending on work start time. Basically if I want to ride, it's a super early start... Whilst kids still sleeping = guilt free schooling. Even then it's only a 30 min max.
Summer = bliss as they can stay out ! ...no time for gym or anything else really!
Although do like to go for a run if I get the chance.
Must be mad. I admit I do feel drained. If I had the cash I would pay for a bit of help, but hey ho, we manage.
Edit to say my OH does help too! Which I'm grateful for.

Obviously it's up to you but I'd leave out the gym as it seems to be the only non essential part and you'll be exhausted!
I'm lucky, my pony has no hard feed and her 'DIY' livery includes her either being turned out at 9ish or brought in at 4/5, so I only have to go in evenings on weekdays. I'm at school so I get there for about 4:30, bring in, muck out and set stable, normally take ages grooming as she gets every patch with no rug on plastered, ride, rug, go home
