Is sleeping 10+ hours normal??

Ok, so here is the deale-o

I went to bed at 0300 am sunday, woke up at 2000.
I did have a point during this period when I went up to pee and drink water, but other than that I was out. ( I Think I Visited the forum for like 5 min to send a PM)

Is it normal to sleep 10+ hours every sunday. I do this almost weekly, no alarm can wake me up, my body knows it's sunday so goes into hibernation.

I do go to bed 0200 almost daily during the week, so I guess i try to compensate it.

any thoughts?

Re: Is sleeping 10+ hours normal??

This is probably your body's way of telling you that you don't get enough sleep during the week and so it tries to compensate for it on Sundays. I think you're lucky, though, that your circadian rhythm (aka "inner clock") allows you to sleep so late on Sundays. Back when I was working a regular job, I would wake up at 7:00 am even on the weekends and was unable to fall back asleep.

Re: Is sleeping 10+ hours normal??

its all about habits.

I believe the general consensus is that you have to sleep in increments of 3 (3h, 6h, 9 h) otherwise you will be tired as you did not complete a full cycle.

but it is nce to be lazy every now and then

I guessed as much too. I've never had troubles about sleeping, that's why jet lag doesn't really hit me ever. Whenever I get somewhere, I just go to bed at nighttime regardless.

Re: Is sleeping 10+ hours normal??

What time do you normally get up? I sleep seven hours a night, usually. Though normally I'll wake by 7am, if I go to bed before midnight, I'll wake up that much earlier.

If I went to bed at 3am, I'd probably emerge about 8am, rather than 8pm.

I go to bed at 0200 and wake up 0700-0800 range. during the week. Saturdays, I have to train at 1100, and it is painful to wake up.

Ah, you're also lucky that you never have troubles sleeping. I once dealt with recurring insomnia for a period of 6 months and ended up hallucinating because it. I remember laying there, tossing and turning one night and started to think that my furnace was Satan firing up the gates of Hell. Lol!

Re: Is sleeping 10+ hours normal??

You don't sleep enough during the week, your body tries to compensate, but really, you're creating a vicious cycle because sleeping too much is bad too. Regularly getting less than seven hours of sleep per night has detrimental effects on your body, for instance, you have the reaction time of someone who has had two glasses of wine. It can cause depression, excessive appetite (a lot of overweight people are found to not sleep enough) and will age you. Some of us can't help not getting enough sleep and I feel bad for them, because I know I feel rubbish if I'm not allowed to sleep. Some maintain that they "only need 5 hours, I can sleep when I'm dead!" but they definitely LOOK like they don't sleep enough and the whole machismo in that is just a tad pathetic. The people who ACTUALLY only need that much and wake up without an alarm are very rare - they do exist but they are usually not the ones who belittle people who give their body the rest it needs. My gran's best friend spent forty years of her life doing sleep research, if there is something about sleep she always tells people it is get more of it and more regularly.

Since I presume you are up that late because you are a) dicking around on the internet, b) watching films, c) gaming or d) chatting with people overseas, i.e. nothing that you truly NEED to do, I recommend setting a timer next to your computer that tells you to go to bed. Like an electronic mum. You'll feel much better for it, because you do look quite tired...

Maybe you are going to bed too late? Try easing your bedtime forward a bit (not all in one jump, jet-lag style when you'll be waking up at 4am) and aim for somewhere between 11pm and midnight.

Your sleep pattern sounds all over the place with the marathon Sunday sleep, and the "painful" 11 am start for training definitely sounds like a form of jet-lag.

Dude. It's obvious.

You're getting up too early.

Try snoozing 'til 10.

Ahhh, 10 hrs sleep. Color me jealous.

Bonny (cat) woke me before 6am today, and I'd only just gone to sleep between 2 and 3.
