Things were a bit rougher today. Waking up I felt more tired usual, and unfortunately my first nap of the day was pretty light - I got up still feeling tired. This might be because I went to sleep at 10:30pm the night before - which if true, would indicate how much you need to stick to your expected duration. It also may be due to a minor cold that my body has been fighting. This morning my chest felt heavy, as though I might be getting a chest cold, but that feeling went away after a few hours and now I'm just left with some stuffiness and congestion.
The second nap went pretty well. I'm using a pillow, eye mask, yoga mat and sound-cancelling headphones to help me get to sleep quickly, but the earphones are digging in a bit (I usually sleep on my left side), and the yoga mat isn't terribly thick. I'm not a stranger to sleeping on a concrete floor with a flak jacket and Kevlar helmet as my "bed" (thanks, Marine Corps), but where possible, I'd like to sleep on something a wee bit softer and more cushiony. Yeah, I've gone soft.
It was a struggle making it through the afternoon, especially during a technical discussion about Diffie Hellman key exchange. Great talk, great presenter, but the drowsiness was a bit rough; I was definitely yawning much more than I usually do.
Third nap was the best of the them, as it tends to be. I was feeling pretty exhausted going into the nap, but afterwards I just felt calm, relaxed, and with more energy. Not especially energetic, but enough to make me feel normal and not too tired. The project continues.
