Yeah, it looks like I'm going to be getting a crappy 6 hours this semester with college. :-( I like to have 8-10 hours. It feels much better when I wake up if I have that amount of sleep.

With my current schedule, Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays I get 5-6 hours. The rest of the week I get 8-10.

I get 6.5 to 8 hours during the week, up to 10 on the weekend.

I turn off the TV at 8:30 and read until I fall asleep around 9:30. I set my alarm for 6 AM during the week, but it never goes off before I wake up, so I feel like I'm getting enough sleep.

Odd that I can sleep longer on the weekends, even though I wake up on my own during the week. I guess the underlying stress of having to get up and get ready for work wakes me up that little bit earlier during the week.

I get about 7 a night. I have a futon in my office and i used to nap for about 45 minutes a day at work but haven't been able to for the past year. I really miss that nap. I feel a dramatic difference in recovering from training. I'm also a better coach for my teams from 3-7 when I've gotten some sleep mid day.

5 - 7 recently.

Not enough, for sure. I can do 7 hours / night for a long time without noticing much of a problem. Six hours I can do for a week or two before feeling it. Five hours / night starts to hurt after a week.

Due to my current state of living (very bizarre), my sleep is broken...usually 3-4 hours during the night and another 1-2 in the late morning after chores and before work. Definitely not good....The WODs seem more painful, my recovery not complete, I got ill early January 2006 (haven't been down and out sick for years) and I still have a cough that I can't shake. I have a lot more respect for parents; I don't know how you do it.

I do much better when I get a solid eight hours.

8 to 9, every night, but only because of my slacker lifestyle.
