Question Installing a GFCI on existing shop circuit

I have a work shop detached from the house and it contains no GFCI circuits at all. It was wired about 20 years ago. I have 2 receptacle circuits and 2 lighting circuits. I planned on putting a GFCI plug in the first receptacle of the 2 plug runs to GFCI protect them. However, my question is on one of the runs at the end there was power taken off of the last plug and run to a single pole switch and light. Will GFCIing the circuit affect the switch and light function. The light is an incandesent fixture.

No problem. Understand that, if the GFCI kicks out, the light and switch will be inoperative until you rest the GFCI.
