Everyman Phase Two: Day 9

Current Schedule: Core Sleep: 10pm-4am  Naps: 6:00-6:20am, 11:20-11:40am, 5:40-6pm.

Getting up today was fairly easy, at little too easy, as it turns out.  Over the weekend, I had gone to bed about 1 - 1.5 hours later than my normal time.  With Everyman, that's not too much of a problem, as you can shift your times a little more flexibly than, say, Uberman (though I know some of you are wagging your fingers at me - mistakes aren't tolerated well during adaptation, so they've told me).  So, in trying to return to my ideal schedule, I had temporarily set the alarm clock for a half hour later.  Unfortunately, I forgot to update my alarm to my regular schedule, so last night I had a 6.5 hour core nap, not 6. Sigh.

While probably not the biggest deal, I don't want to send my body mixed messages. I've fixed the alarm clock, but am also preparing for more-than-usual snafus when I start my five-hour core nap on Friday night.  Though in reality, I suppose I left usual a long time ago, so perhaps it's more accurate to say I'll have a normal night.  Ha.

Naps today were lighter in general, despite fighting to stay awake getting to and from work.  My hope was that my tiredness at those times would encourage heavy napping - not quite, it would seem.  Surprisingly, however, I felt very productive today, and had no problem getting things done today at work or focusing.  This still puzzles and intrigues me, but then again, so does polyphasic sleep in general, hence my interest.  I imagine I should discover quite a bit more about myself through this journey, but I'm happy to take the ride (however bumpy it gets).
