Polyphasic Sleep Day 71

Total Sleep Time: 3 hrs 47 min

3am – 4 min

Started Late – about 45 min


  • 2 Beers
  • 1 organic tortilla
  • 2 small organic pizzas

I just couldn’t fall asleep again until the very end.  I woke via my cell.  I realize I was supposed to sleep a core, but I just didn’t really feel like it so I tried for the 10 min nap instead.  I am awake and fine right now, but not sure how long that will last.  Heading back downstairs to watch some more Stargate Universe.

7am – 2 hours 00 min

Started Early – about 30 min


  • Artesian Water

I got really tired and decided I would just try a 2 hour core as I needed to be up before 9am.  I was able to get up, however I am yawning all the time and extremely tired. Cores are such a pain, I wish I could do the 10 min naps all the time.

11am – 3 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 2 cups of coffee

Again I am having trouble falling right to sleep.  Eventually I did and woke via my cell

3pm – 9 min

Started Early – about 15 min


  • 1 cup of coffee
  • 1 Migas Breakfast Taco

I was trying so hard to stay awake til 3pm.  I almost made it, but finally had to go to sleep.  I fell nearly right to sleep and woke via my cell alarm

7pm – 1 hr 27 min


  • Artesian Water
  • 1 cup of coffee
  • 9 Jalapeno Pretzels

I was so tired going into this.  When I woke after 10 min, I just didn’t want to get up, no motivation at all. I laid there and decided to just fall back to sleep and see what happens.  I woke about 1hr 20 minutes later.  So, tomorrow I will make 1.5 hours my core and see what happens

11pm – 4 min


  • Artesian Water

I was surprised I fell asleep at all, but I did.  I woke easily via the cell alarm.

Total Sleep Time: 3 hrs 47 min

Thus ends day 71 of the Polyphasic Sleep Project and overall I was drained again.  It could also be not getting the full 10 minutes in the naps.  Right now after only sleeping 4 minutes, I feel awake but a little drained. hmm… I just don’t know. It could be so many reasons. Anyway, tomorrow I am going to try and sleep 1.5 hours for my core and see how that goes.

Sleep Well,
