Before I start, NO! Not trolling. Okay, on to post.
Sunday night something happened that initially I though was going to be really cool, I had always though it would be cool to do it before, but after Sunday/Monday/tonight, it really was just scary/weird/gave me the damn jeepers no kiddin'.
On average I get about seven hours of sleep a night. Work days/95% of the weekends I sleep 11:00-6:00 to 12:00-7:00, depends on when I fall asleep but I don't use an alarm. I can always expect to wake in seven hours, sometimes less or more. I get right out of bed when I wake if it makes any difference. I'm a night owl, I have a ton of energy at night, always have, I could work from the time I wake from the time I sleep and only rest when I sleep, not bragging, just showing that I have a lot of energy during the night, even after lifting.
So once every month or less I take a trip to town on a Saturday night for friends/party/girls. Those nights are my acception, with me falling asleep sometime around 3-5 AM and sleeping until about Noon. So I have always heard the stories all the men tell me about how they worked a full day, went to town, smashed vag/beer/fistfight ect.. Whatever, got back to work as the sun was coming up, shower off, put the work clothes on and put in another full day of work, no sleep. One guy even says: "Oh yeah man, two, three days without sleep was normal shit for us we just pushed it hard." (<---whatever that shit means)
And I was always astounded. I do have much energy at night, but when my body decides to crash, I crash hard, and have to sleep no matter what.
YES I AM GETTING TO THE POINT
So Saturday I went out, ate supper, went against my better judgement and drank a couple beers at a hangout, stayed around for a couple hours just to make sure I was good to drive. (Yes dammit,lightweight, as light as they come, I can tell a noticeable difference after two beers, even though I know I can drive after two, I choose not to risk it, the whole Zero Tolerance thing here is enforced). NOTE: ONLY SUBSTANCES I TOOK ALL NIGHT, nothing else, food and beer. I only mention beer to give you information so you can possibly tell me what happened Sunday night.
So then I drive home. Get home, sleep four hours, go to work, go home, hangout in my house, lose track of time, braiding rope, hands busy, mind busy, I look up, it's 6AM. WDF! Okay, hasn't ever happened before, put the work clothes on and I worked all day today, I took an hour nap in my truck on the road before a neighbor woke me up to see if I was okay. Then, worked until Seven PM and now I am at my house, the time is 10:42 PM and I know damn good and well I can stay up until the sun comes up tomorrow, I am as alert as ever, no caffeine since lunch time.
I started to really get the creeps earlier today, even called a friend for a reality check, he said I was cool the whole night, and I KNOW I WAS. I didn't take anything. But how come I havn't crashed yet? How come I'm still going strong for almost three days on less than 8 hours sleep?
Has this ever happened to you?
It's buggin' me out because I don't know if I should roll with it and stay awake and work in the house or if I should lay down and make myself crash.
Beer have any connection? (I'm 99% sure it absolutly does not, but that's the only thing I have taken lately that my body would even remotly find foreign.)
No workout stack shit, no uppers, no caffeine pills for lifting or anything, I had one cup of coffee today.
WDF! This can not be healthy.
