Day 3 — Everyman, 3 naps


polyphasic sleep phases diagram, everyman schedule

March 10th 2012, Core sleep (night) in Everyman shedule

I woke up at 2:30 after 3h of core sleep and it was easy. I felt awake and my mind was clear for a few hours. I could blog, program and move well.

Today I’ll take 3 naps of 30 minutes: At 7:00, 12:00 and 17:00. Around 4am hunger lead me to a new recipe:  Fresh orange + carob tree syrup (Peruvians call it Algarrobo, and it’s supposed to be invigorating and healthy …  maybe a good thing for the sleep deprived) .

I’ve just started but I’ve already met the little impracticalities  of the schedule. We drove to do some shopping … and it got late.  So the 17:00 nap caught me in the supermarket turning me into a  zombie.  My third nap had to be taken in the car while my girlfriend drove.  But it worked!  Again the night found me exhausted after only  4h of total sleep.  Good night!

  1. Hey! It looks like the überman transition is not easy…well, I guess it was supposed to be like that. Anyway, keep going, it looks amazing!

  2. Hi Nadir, … I’m afraid I forgot the sensor for the car nap! But it would have been cool to find out if the car woke me up more than usual or was conducive of light sleep. However I do have a little sleeping lab I carry with me when traveling 🙂
