Back to roots

I like bioinformatics because it is so useful at pointing out the next useful experiments and helping to extract knowledge from your data. This is why I think it is possible and useful to do experimental work alongside with computational work.
I have spent the last week back in the bench doing some biochemistry. I usually don't do much bench work although I have a biochemistry degree. It is at the moment not easy to keep up doing my computational work while doing the lab work but I want, until the end of my PhD, to find a way to keep doing both things at the same time. I should divide my time between the two mind sets but I am not sure of the best way.
Any ideas ?
