Polyphasic Sleep, Day 7
Difficulty 3 out of 5: Today was significantly easier than any previous days since the first. That could be a sign that the polyphasic sleep adaptation is progressing smoothly, or it could simply be a lingering effect of oversleeping on Day 6.
The intense drowsiness I used to experience from 4am to 12pm seems to have distributed itself through the day somewhat since the oversleeping incident. I still experienced the most difficulty from 8am to 12pm, but I also experienced a few other short periods of tiredness in the early morning, early afternoon, and evening.
I wish I had more to say about Day 7, but less news is good news here. If things begin to settle into regular patterns, I'll probably decrease the update frequency (i.e. post one entry covering several days), much as Steve did in his (much more detailed) record, so that there's not too much repetition among my log entries.
I feel now much as I did at the end of Day 5: lots of days left, but the hardest part is done!
