Being Tired...

Here's my intro to this thread:

I had to reread the thread title "How does this log look" three times before I realized that it didn't say "How long does my nose look?" It's been a long and dull day...

=====================


When I am tired I begin laughing uncontrollably at everything.. Everyone thinks that there is something wrong with me, because I start hyperventilating and everything... That mixed with being unable to process words makes me look pretty bad... I also start repeating myself over and over again. I also start repeating myself over and over again. I also start reading the same sentence... :)

So I wondered:
What happens when other people get tired?

And now I ask you:
What happens when you get tired?

P.S.- Please don't respond with:

When I get tired, I go to bed... :)

That is not a healthy option!

When I get tired, I get tired. I slow down. I snap for no particular reason. So quite literally, when I get tired, I get some rest!

there is no other fix for being tired ( a sign that your body needs to rest ) other than going to bed and well... resting !!! lol

There is many of "Temp Fixes " , but they can only last so long of course... and how far could / can you push yourself ???

can of drink : once the sugar / gluecose(Energy ) is burned off ( youll be right back into the friedge again for another :) )

take a pill : might keep you up longer... what what is it doing to your stomache and the rest of your body???

i recommend you sleep for 10 mins , go another hour or so ( if need be ) then give your body the well deserved rest it requires :)

You are supposed to get 7 hours every 24 hours... ( quarter of a life wasted lmfao)

But iam open to an suggestion to make that a third of a life-time :)

lol, not healthy, but really good :)


and also, you can push yourself to 3 days without sleep, sometimes more.

S.E.A.Ls do it all the time in their B.U.D training :)

Hehe, and you have the training and muscle build + psyke like a S.E.A.L?
There physical state allow them to abuse their body. For untrained people
this kind of behaviour can have unforseen consequences, like mental illness.

Just a word of caution from a former professional soldier.

Sleep deprivation makes it hard for me to focus. Plus, I do get a little snappy and irritable. Usually starts around the 18th hour I'm awake. The longest I've ever been awake was about 50 hrs, but that was in my younger days. I was basically a zombie by that point

You are supposed to get 7 hours every 24 hours

I can't go longer than six hours. Any more than that and I feel tired the rest of the day. Sounds strange. If I get less than 5 hours, I feel the same. It's amazing how much it varies from person to person. I know some people that swear they need 10 hours and some that need just a few. Some people can sleep through 3 alarm clocks, a Hurricane and a bus driving through their house all at the same time. Others wake up when the wind blows

At that pace you are FAR from the physical conditioning of a SEAL (I'm more partial to the Army Rangers than SEALS, but there is a reason for that).

*sari ran an 8 minute mile yesterday, and she'd compare herself to an elderly walrus, not a seal.

can't vouch for the accuracy BUT

1.5-mile run

Wearing boots and pants, the maximum time allowed for this one is 11 minutes, 30 seconds, but you should be able to cover the distance in 9 to 10 minutes to be competitive. Pace yourself: do not start off too fast on the first lap. Shoot for a 90-seconds quarter-mile run time around a standard high school track. Repeat this pace for six to 10 sets until you no longer have to rest in between quarter-miles.

...so apparently a 8 minute mile would get you into the SEALS (assuming they only cared if you could run)

well if a 1 and a half mile run took 8-9mins to be competative for a SEAL, that would mean they run one mile in less than that?
