Preparation for polyphasic sleeping

I had a driving ‘mid-term’ exam today which I passed, but I realize I still need to practice a lot before I get comfortable on the road. The next week is thus going to be an intense week for driving skills practice. For that reason, I have to adjust my polyphasic sleeping goals, because I cannot afford to be like a zombie if I have to ace my driving.

I’m still going to do it, but will instead adopt the ‘everyman’ polyphasic sleep pattern, which seems more achievable. My new plan of sleep is:

from 01:30 to 06:00 (4.5 hours sleep)

from 12:00 to 12:20 (20 minute power nap)

from 19:00 to 19:20 (20 minute power nap)

In total I will thus sleep 5.2 hours, and will save some time with that throughout the day. I would like to evolve to the uberman later (total of 2 hours with 6*20 minute power naps), because this would seem highly effective for competing in an ultraskate. That way, I also know exactly when I’m going to sleep, and don’t waste energy going with feeling. I noticed this during the last ultraskate: it is very hard to determine how much recovery time your body needs in order to sustain most effective performance. Planned sleeping is the way to go.
