We've talked about sleep before, but I was curious what time people went to sleep to get all those hours.

I get made endless fun of for going to bed "early" at 10:30 because I get up at 5 to swim. So I was curious for those who swim early (and also others) what time everybody starts the REM?

You and me both, it's a big running joke of my whole family and all our friends. It borders on annoying, to be honest.

I go to bed as early as I can get away with, usually 9-9:30.

Unfortunately, usually not before 11. I blame this on EST, since many of my favorite shows (which I tend to sleep through) begin at 10. I'm looking forward to living in the cental time zone again, since I get up before 5 to swim.

I don't do mornings...I would have a hard time being into swimming if I swam in the am. Even when I used to get up at 5 to go into NYC I stayed up until 11 or so because I'm a night owl...weekends were spent banking sleep.

Usually 11:00-11:30 for me. I don't swim in the morning, but get up for work at 5:40, so that gives me at least six hours of sleep.

I am horrible. I try so hard to go to bed by 1130, but rarely does that happen. Normally I look up from my work or procrastination and its after 12 already. During college season I got up every day at 5 19am. Now I need to be at the pool on mon and wed by 530, so i have to get up at 450am...those days I tend to skip, since I am getting so little sleep. I really need something disciplined to get me to bed on time.

Sounds familiar. I very seldom stay up past 10:00 even on weekends.

I live on the eastern edge of the Pacific zone, and our TV programing is from Salt Lake which carries the same schedule as Central so prime time is over at 9:00. I usually watch the news and Leno's monologue and am asleep by 10:30.

When I was in college my bestfriend and I would stay up and watch the 3am Family Ties then go to bed ... so it was around 4am back then ... I would sleep until 9 roll to class, then go back to bed for a nap or ideally sleep until 11 ... I am a total night owl.

Even now I would like to be in bed by 10:30/11 but on a good night it's 11 ... frequently after 12 ... :shakeshead: I'm thinking of swimming at 5:45 am this summer so we'll see what that does ... (I get up by 6 now)

With our family schedule morning swims work best, but that means packing everything, lunches, clothes swim bag etc the night before and then I am up at 4:30am to get out of the house and over to the pool which opens at 5am. Thankfully, I am a morning person and a few friends swim at that time so it isnt so bad. Then it is right to work from the pool with a quick before school cell phone call to my daughter. So I try to get into bed by 9:30, asleep by 10 which my 9 yr old loves as her bedtime is 9. Now the bigger question is will my husband keep me up with his snoring after all this preparation. :frustrated:

Well, I guess I'm staying up late with the college kids. I never go to bed before 12:00 pm, usually later. Yeah, lately it's been 12:30 or later. Total night owl. I try not to get up before 7:00 am. I would not even consider joining a masters group with early morning practices. But props to those who do! Besides, I have hoardes of children to get off to school in the am. And my kids don't go to sleep early. I have to have some non-kid time in the evening.

If I had my druthers, I'd be asleep at 11:30 and get 7 hours sleep every night. But that is purely wishful thinking.

Have fun getting up at the crack of dawn this summer FlyQueen. :thhbbb: Wait, I shouldn't make fun of you, I think one of my kids is going to have some 4:40 am practices this summer. I'm going to make her quit swimming. Ugh.

When it taper time I'll easily stay up until 1am. :drink:

[QUOTE I really need something disciplined to get me to bed on time.[/QUOTE]

Or someone?! :woot:

I used to get up at 4:20am to be on the deck ready to swim at 4:45. YUCK!!! Since I started Masters in 1993, I have been to maybe ten 5:30am workouts. I just hate it.

My sleeping, or lack thereof, has been responsible for a lot of bad in my life these past few years: meningitis, lots of pneumonia, weight gain, and worst of all, depression... anyway, dealt with it all. I don't have a problem going to sleep, it's just that either the kids, or the dogs, or the cat wake me up 2-3 times/night. So I rarely have a good night's sleep.

I have always required at least eight, preferably nine, hours sleep. How does the song go, "It's over, oh yes, it's over."

Sleep while the sleepin's good!

Gotta get to bed by 10 PM (at least 5 nights a week) for the 5:45 AM practices. Otherwise, it's an ugly looking, painful practice for me :dedhorse: :dedhorse: ! What's that saying - Early to bed, early to rise, makes one healthy, wealthy, and . . . nerdy, boring, and dead. . . :joker:

I'm a morning person but a college student, so I have evening meetings or activities at least a few nights a week that keep me from going to bed really early. I swim in the mornings at 7, so I try to go to bed by 11 (usually ends up being between 10:45 and 11:30). That gives me 7-8 hours of sleep on average.

Early mornings are wonderful! I'm usually awake before dawn and if I'm not swimming or going to work early I take my coffee on the patio and listen to the morning sounds. I'll usually hear several different kinds of birds including owls, robins, and mourning doves, and sometimes coyotes.
Lately I've been going to work early just so I can get something done before the #*@#!! phones start ringing. And then I swim through my lunch. Mid-day swims are so much better than the early ones.

Not me!:rofl: I'm a bad influence. Stay up late. Have fun. Engage in many vices. Rely on caffeine. Catch up on the weekend. Sorry. :D Couldn't resist.

My husband tries to tell me to go to bed earlier, but I ignore him. And I just can't seem to fall asleep early. The sleep programming is too deeply imbedded. Fortunately, he's a night owl too and seems to subsist on 6 hours of sleep fairly easily. (He gets up way, way before me to run and I completely ignore him.)

I agree with Karen. Kids are hell on sleep. The 40s are hell on sleep too as far as I'm concerned.

Twin:

I am not jealous of those morning people! Ugh. Poolraat can keep all his coyotes. I'd rather be a NO and never, ever have to get up early. Since this is not possible, I'm just usually a bit or a lot sleep deprived. But there's always :coffee: .

I can't help it; I am in bed watching TV by 7:30 pm and asleep between 8 and 8:30. I think it is the heat and humidity here, and lots of swim mileage, so I am just trashed by 6pm. Plus, I get up at 4:00am to do chores because the sun is already up and I am starting to feel the heat by 5 am. But I don't swim until 12 noon each day and swim between 12 and 2, the hottest part of the day because the house is so hot and it is better to be in the cool ocean.

I am naturally a morning person. Love my 5:30 am practices!!!!!! Try to be in bed at 8:30 - does not happen often - and do a puzzle until ready to sleep - around 9:00 or 9:30 (I am very high-strung and like the quiet time (no husband or kid, only dog if she stays quiet) to wind down). I go to the evenig practice when I have to catch an early plane and miss morning practice....the whole time I am in the water - 8:15 - 9:00 pm - all I can think about is that I should be in bed, not swimming!!!! I married a night owl - I used to yawn on our dates and he would ask 'Am I boring you?' - still can't believe he married me!!!!:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I usually hit the hay between 10-11, up at 6 AM to swim at 7 AM. I'm like a horse that has to be knocked out though; I take cold medicine and a sleeping pill to knock me out and them I'm not stuck watching too much dumb TV!

I'm with Donna, somewhat.

On the night before a practice with the kids team, I put my son to bed at 7:30 and walk straight into my bedroom where I'm in bed by 7:50 and the tv is off by 8. I get up just before 4am for a 4:30 practice. The other nights of the week I'm usually asleep on the couch around 9 as a result of getting up at 4am that morning. If I stay up "late" it's 10pm. I'm a morning person, though. I DO mornings (no caffeine, too) :D

You can't soar with the eagles if you are out hooting with the owls! An old coach of mine used to claim that the best sleep you get is in the hours before midnight. Not much scientific proof behind it, but it sounded good at the time.

I'm a life long morning person, which paid dividends when I was in the USMC. I can't even sleep in on weekends; just wake up and get moving. Night time is a different story. I can doze off during the best episode of 24!

I think this is a swim myth. I've swum in plenty of meets on 4-5 hours sleep for various reasons and not done that poorly. :coffee:

Alison: What on earth are you going to do when your kid gets older and don't go to bed at 7:30? :rofl: Teenagers are biologically programmed to stay up later. I have to yank my kids' cell phones away and kick them off the computer and nag for them to turn their lights off every night. Every year it gets later and later. That's why I go to bed late. I have to recover and relax from all that nagging.

I'm a very unhappy person if I'm not in bed by 9:00. I need 8-9 hours of sleep to act human. I'm up at 4:45 for a 5:15 workout. On the weekends I can usually push my to-bed time until 10, but I just can't stay awake much later than that. Naps for me are extremely rare, but sometimes if I have plans where I know that I'll be out 'til the bars close, I have to sneak one in.

Good question. I'm hoping by the time we are dealing with a kid who stays up later either my husband will take over all bed time stuff or I'll be able to swim with a different team (with my husband's job we could move at any time). I hope....

I used to go to bed between 9 and 10pm (2100-2200) and wake up without an alarm at around 0500.

For the last few years however, due to High Blood Pressure and being on Diuretics, I also take an anti-anxiety pill to help me sleep through the night. My body and my eyes tell me to go to bed at around that same time 2100-2200) but, usually, I don't fall asleep before 0100 or 0200. Some nights I won't sleep at all (once every ten days or so). And then no matter at what time I've -finally, if at all- fallen asleep, I'll wake up between 0530 and 0600 but without the energy to rise before 0700 and will occasionally skip the morning swim (for which I would have to leave the apartment by 0730 to make the 0800-0900 session and into work around 0920.)

Back in Egypt, until 1976, the normal business workday was 0830 to 1300 (1pm) then an afternoon break and work from 5pm to 8pm.

During that 1pm to 5pm lunch-cum-siesta break, I used to go to the club for a swim then home for a good Mediterranean (i.e., heavy) lunch then a two-hour nap before heading back to work (which wasn't too far away). Dinner was usually around 10pm.

Ever since my workday has become 9-to-5, weekend naps are out (as are heavy workday lunches. I actually don't lunch at all; even a light lunch will make my body want to nap.)

It is not unusual for me to stay up past midnight during the week. I HATE mornings. My wife's joke is that I am the only person in the world who could go to bed at 9pm or 1am and wake the next morning with the same dispostion. Rotten. I honestly do not know how I was a swimmer for so long. When I was in college it was normal for me to go to sleep after 2am. To this day if I go to bed early I feel I have missed out on something. Unfortunalely I am up and grudgingly moving at 6:45:mad: for work and taking my boy to school.

Lighten up, Francis. I thought it was both moderately funny and relevant...and probably true.

"Lighten up Francis.".....one of the best movie quotes in the world! We say that a lot at my house when someone is being too serious!

UGGGHH! I tried to go to bed earlier than usual last night. I actually got in bed around 10:30 and read til I got sleepy...around 11:00. It took me about 45 minutes to go to sleep. I woke up around 2:30 WIDE AWAKE! I think I am a vampire!

I thought it was funnier and more relevant than questioning whether someone was working.

Lighten up Francis! That was hysterical, KNelson. :applaud:

My point was that between two working adults and young kids we haven't seen a nap here in years. Maybe you should lighten up, or get a job, either is fine.

I hold steady that references to genitalia aren't needed on this forum. Then again, I'm easily offended.

Sounds like Sgt Hulka (another Stripes reference that Geek probably doesn't understand) ought to put his 'big toe' (and another) up someones arse. Or is that too close to genitalia.

"Shut up and swim" is often heard coming out of my mouth at masters workouts.

Not that again. :dedhorse:

You gotta break down and buy a dictionary. There are more words in it than appropriate and inappropriate.

I guess the 10,000 posters that mentioned naked relays on the swimming festival thread finally got to you. Or else your dog bit you. Or something. :dunno: All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

He's obviously not discussing religion. He's discussing "men."

My experience with men is that they generally go to bed later than their wives and complain about how early their wives go to bed. My twin vampire and I do not fit this stereotype. What about a vampire avatar, Beth?

Naps, I love naps. :snore: Most weekends I get one or two :snore:; sometimes I have to leave work to get one :snore: if I've been training heavily.

Before more important meets, I'll schedule timeoff work in the afternoon a couple of days in advance of the meet, to catch up on sleep via naps. :snore:

OK, OK, I know you're just afraid of the wrath of HWMNBN if you take down that DAWG. But if I take down my roadrunner, it might sadden Peter. He might get insomnia or turn to pinot grigio. Oh, he's not even on line. He's probably napping. I'll put one up. The things one must do for a sister ...

Out of curiosity, knowing you live close to the ocean, when you go fishing, do you normally catch scrods so easily with your bait? With all your new pals, I bet you got a poem up your sleeve.

So many insults in just two sentences. When I checked the dictionary, posters were not "scrods." Nor were poets. And do not be insulting my twin.

Go take a nap, please. :frustrated: And maybe some good drugs for whatever is ailing you.

Kyra,
Thanks for bringing up this interesting thread. Unfortunately it has collapsed into thinly veiled personal attacks.
