Polyphasic Sleep – Day 17

 Doctor's Trust 468X60

Total Sleep Time: 4hr 01m

3am – 3hr 4min
So I was watching Ugly Betty, and I thought, okay it was getting  a little bettor, that was an emotional scene.  I was running late about 30 minutes for the nap and I was laying on the black hole couch where nothing escapes the event horizon of this extremely comfortable beast and  I was buried under the electric blanket and I thought, okay, I would try and take  a nap in on the couch.  I got my timer and fall asleep.  I don’t remember the timer going off, I don’t remember any dreams, I don’t remember anything, except it was now 3 hrs later.  That couch is very anti-polyphasic, I told it, it better get on board with this, but it never responded which I suppose is a good thing.

7am – skip
Didn’t even bother to even think about sleeping this time.  Although as I write this my eyesight is getting a little blurry, hmm…  I am drinking a couple of cups of organic coffee, so maybe that will help.

11am – 13min
I couldn’t fall asleep.  I got tired right on time, but laid there.  I finally drifted off, but right now I am a little tied.  I still am drinking that coffee, so hopefully that will help wake me up again.  My eye sight is back to normal.

3pm – 16min
I didn’t fall right to sleep, but I did pretty quickly.  I woke with 10 minutes left, but fell back to sleep and woke with 30 seconds left.  One of the things I was worried about was my work-out with heavy weights and today I was able to move up in weight on both my biceps and triceps, so that was nice.

7pm – 28min
I fell asleep and forgot to set the timer, however, my plan B kicked in as I did set the alarm on my computer, so that woke me.  I feel awake and ready to go, although I have nowhere to go, but I am ready.

11am – 00min
I laid down about 30 minutes late.  I was tired and thought I would fall right to sleep, but for some reason I didn’t.  I started on my back and at 13minutes left, I turned to my left side and at 4 minutes left I tried the right, but nothing worked.  Now, I am not really tired, but I can feel a weariness in the eyes.  However, as I was proofreading this, I started to yawn, a lot.  So, I don’t know if I will make it to the 3am time or not.  However, that is a problem for another day.

Thus end day 17 of the Polyphasic Sleep Project, hopefully tomorrow will be more productive.

Sleep well,
