Everyman Phase Three: Day 10

Current Schedule: Core Sleep: 10pm-1am  Naps: 6:00-6:20am, 11:20-11:40am, 5:40-6pm.

I did NOT want to get up today.  My body was fighting every step of the way, and yet after I did my morning routine like shaving, measuring my vitals, etc, I was more or less feeling fine.  Unfortunately, this did not persist for long, and I was counting down the time until my first nap of the day.  That occasional tiredness dogged me at various times throughout the day, which was frustrating but not entirely unexpected.

I've heard various estimates thrown out, but for my purposes I'm waiting until I've been at Phase Three for a solid three weeks before I evaluate whether I'm making progress towards final adaptation or still struggling to adapt.  I'm sure my various deviations thus far haven't helped, and by all accounts Everyman does indeed take longer than, say, Uberman to adapt to, for the convenience of a less severe adaptation period.  All in all, though, I'm marking this as par for the course, and I'm still dedicated to making this work.

Considering that the supposedly "average" person sleeps 8 hours a day, by condensing my sleep to only 4 hours of highly efficient sleep, I gain an extra 25% of life.  The implications of that are huge, especially if you consider that life is only truly meaningful when you're awake.  As I haven't observed any significant illness or impairment thus far (other than the sleep dep expected during transition), I'm got plenty of motivation to see this thing through.

Updated vitals here.
