Could be. However, it'd be nice to hit the sack at the same time as the Fetching Mrs. TimW w/o being wide awake at 3am.

Sigh.

Worst part of it is, late night is when I get those munchies...and rummaging around the kitchen at 1am, when our bedroom is on the other side of the kitchen wall, isn't much an option. :-)

Tim I didn't see anywhere in the Zone diet where you are "allowed" to rummage in the fridge at 1:00am... I think that is when you are supposed to be a devoute CF'r and role out of bed and do pushups till you want to sleep again. LOL I used to do this when I was younger-eventually I just became really good at push ups... lol Now older age and wisdom tells me it is a great time to contemplate the philisophical issues of life.

Happy sleeping,

sheila

You people are nuts... or maybe just not training hard enough *grin*, [Ian then ducks to avoid the rocks and boulders hurled at him] I personally aim for somewhere between 7-10hrs of sleep. I would be dead without it.
Though I can pull the occasional 3-5hrs I avoid it all costs.

My excuse is simply that my body needs that rest when I am chalking in around 30hrs of exercise some weeks (half of that is time spent walking, the other half training).

If we are nuts I want to be a macadamia!!! 7-10 hours of sleep...???? that is amazing. In the summer when I am going nuts with extra sports I MIGHT pull off 6 hours... maybe being nuts is a matter of perspective....:smile:

Chiming in here. Lately I've actually blocked out a good 9 hours and I'll crash at 10-11 and wake up at 3-4. Sucks. I can usually get back to sleep but then I'm tired at 7 or so when I actually get up. I've blocked most of the light in the sleep chamber and it is pretty dark this time of year so I play a game of guess the time when I wake up. I'm pretty good at it although it sucks when I guess 5:30 and it turns out to be 2:30.

2-14 hours, depending on the day of the week.

It used to average around 9 hours, now it's more around 7-8.

I don't feel noticeably better with more sleep, but too little sleep inevitably catches upto you. I wish I could sleep 4 hours every night and have a productive 20 h ahead of me.

Sleep is a really fascinating thing. I think blanket statements like "you need 8 hours of sleep" aren't very accurate. Also, I haven't found the notion of sleep debt to work all that well either.

7-8 hours during the week. Up to 10 on the weekends. The occasional 5 hour night during the week.

Last summer I got 9-10 hours every night. It was delightful.

Summer. The best part of being a teacher.
