Polyphasic Sleep Day 3

Quality of sleep for day three was just alright.  I woke up at 2 am because I was uncomfortable (probably because I sleep in a recliner when I’m at my parents’ house, duh) and so I had to readjust my body and then my blindfold but I was having a dream so that’s a good sign.  I believe it had something to do with picking out a Christmas tree with the Grinch… but yeah so I don’t recall any other dreams throughout the day, unfortunately.  However, I did fall asleep rather quickly for all of my naps.  And I did not take an extra nap before 8 am today.

When I woke up at three I was very cold for a long while but was productive and alert.  Most likely due to the fact that my mom was still awake so I went out in the dining room with her and got on the computer.  However, I was extremely tired after my eight o’clock nap (starting around 10) and almost didn’t make it to my next nap.  At the end I was mindlessly eating celery sticks to keep myself focused.  I was watching a documentary before this but I had to put on regular TV to try to catch my attention.  It was the pits.  I was still a little fatigued after waking up from my second nap but my level of alertness increased the later it got.  I didn’t even want to take my third nap and woke up from it very refreshed and very alert and motivated.

Physically my calves felt fine so my muscles recovered normally but I pulled a muscle in my chest during yoga so I’m not sure if it was because of fatigue or my body just isn’t used to yoga yet and two days in a row got me.  It was fine after some light stretching though. I didn’t run today but I don’t see running being an issue.  I did notice that my adenoids were a little swollen in the period between my first and second naps and I was worried I might be getting sick, or at least was more susceptible to my allergy symptoms, but the discomfort diminished as the day progressed.

Overall, I think this day went really well.  By the end I was hyper even!  Also very productive (I memorized the 50 states alphabetically in under an hour), I don’t even want to go to sleep at midnight.  So far so good it seems!
