After 3 weeks I finally came back to the E3 schedule. But why did I quit at all? Well, I was tired since a couple of days and my health wasn’t good. Because of that and the fact that I face 2 weeks of hard physical work to help my brother building a house made the decision easier. However it was never my intend to quit forever. I just wanted to work and get well.
The first week was very hard for me because I really felt sick. Although I was always very tired when I went to bed I awake the first days around 3 to 4 am. But I stayed in bed and continue sleeping. After the second week I slept through. The third week was actually reserved for recovery.
I can’t describe how it felt to drink coffee again. I enjoyed it very much! It was also interesting how it effected me. Half of a cup already pushed me so hard that I was fully awake a few hours. But this got less and less each day until it reaches a normal level.
My first day back
I was excited to restart it again! Especially after the third week where I really felt more and more tired because I just slept too long. Sounds weird but if you did not try E3 you can’t imagine how awake you can be!
I started with my usual schedule which includes the core sleep from 0:00 to 3:15 am. Although I had no troubles to fall asleep the whole 3 weeks off, I struggled today. I think it was because I really felt exited and this really makes it hard for me to fall asleep. I can’t say how long it really took me to fall asleep but it was at least 30 minutes. The sleep was deep and refreshing. Getting up wasn’t hard and I felt good so I started to read a book. After some time I worked on a side project on my computer. It wasn’t hard to stay concentrated.
My first nap was at 5:45 am because I wanted it to be right before the sunrise. This nap was OK. I couldn’t fall asleep but I was dozing and I felt refreshed afterwards.
The second and third nap were at work. Both times I managed it to fall asleep and I felt refreshed! I scheduled them on 1:45 pm and 6:45 pm.
