I had two opposite days back to back. Thursday was a wonderful day on polyphasic. I slept on time, went right to bed, felt energized, etc. I got an insane amount of work done.
On Friday however, I can’t say the same. I couldn’t sleep much at all in my core. Partly my fault and partly due to my fiance not feeling well at all. So, I probably slept a total of 1.5-2 hours even though I was in bed for 3.5. This is rare for me these days, my core is usually straight to sleep and not waking up once.
Due to this, I was exhausted by the time my first nap came on and even though I set my alarms for 40 minutes, I had zero hope of waking up. Honestly, I wasn’t even disappointed as I felt so much better when I woke up from that first long nap. Typically, on oversleeps I feel groggy when I wake up, but I think I needed this one as I felt really good waking up and for the rest of the day.
My remaining naps were difficult I think due to the oversleep. I probably got a total of 10 minutes in the two combined. Putting my head down last night for my core felt FANTASTIC I’ll tell ya.
