Everyman Phase Three: Day 1

Current Schedule: Core Sleep: 10pm-1am  Naps: 6:00-6:20am, 11:20-11:40am, 5:40-6pm.
Today officially begins Phase Three, and the last adjustment to my schedule (barring any new schedule conflicts or the like) - it feels great to have make it this far.  While I'm technically at the same point schedule-wise as someone who's jumped in cold turkey, I also feel that I've performed a lot of the mental and biological retraining necessary to adopt a polyphasic schedule.  My hope is that this last leg won't be nearly as rough as it would be for someone just starting out, and who jumped to the end-state Everyman schedule immediately.

As far as how I feel, I've been fine so far.  The morning drowsiness wore off shortly after waking, and I tried to stay busy enough to keep boredom and sleep at bay.  The first and third naps were great and deep, although the second one was fairly light.  This may be because I wasn't able to really seal out the light in my bedroom, so I have may have to get to work hanging some light blocking shades and/or use a sleep mask.

The real test will come in the next few days, as my body reacts to the latest change in schedule.  Updated vitals here
