Polyphasic Sleep Day 61

Total Sleep Time: 1 hrs 33 min

3am – 10 min

Started Late – about 1 hour


  • Artesian Water
  • 1 beer
  • 2 organic pizza’s

I fell right to sleep and woke via my cell alarm

7am – 1 hr 03  min


  • Walk/Run at Trail


  • Artesian Water

I tried just the one 10 minute nap, but woke way too tired, so I tried 20 minutes, and still way too tired so, I settled on trying for an hour and woke via my back up computer alarm.   All-in-all just over an hour of sleep and I feel a little tired, like a normal person when waking.

11am – 10 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 1 cup of coffee

Went to sleep quickly and woke via my cell alarm.

3pm – 10 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 1 cup of coffee
  • 1 Pretzel Rod

I fell right to sleep and woke via my cell alarm.  However, going into this time session I was extremely tired.  The 10 minutes naps are great but I am not sure how long I can keep it going with only a core nap of 1 hour.

7pm – 10 min


  • Went to the trail again and walked, the course is just over a mile I believe.


  • Artesian Water
  • 1 cup of coffee
  • hormone free ground beef with organic potatoes and my organic flour tortillas

I was pretty awake going into this nap.  However, right as I laid down I started getting really tired and fell right to sleep.  I woke via my cell alarm and feel rested.

11pm – 00 min

Started Late – about 45 minutes


  • Artesian Water
  • 2 handfuls of Organic trail mix
  • 1 organic banana

I was working on some training at Wealthy Affiliates and time got away from me.  Anyway, I laid down to sleep, but it never happened.  So, I got up when the alarm went off.

Total Sleep Time: 1 hrs 33 min

Thus ends day 61 of the Polyphasic Sleep Project and overall I felt nice and awake for sleeping under 2 hours and had 2 small workouts.  We shall see if I can make it under 2 hours again tomorrow.  I am shooting for a 1 hour core at 4am, so wish me luck.

Sleep Well,
