As you can see by the previous post Allyssa can't continue the sleep cycle. That's fine; it's not for everyone. This means that I will be taking over the blog again after her brief stint. I have only taken a few notes during this time frame so I will be posting a couple a day until the blog and I get on the same page. At this time I will be doing daily or every other day posts. I realize now that I had been blogging much too frequently. So, here's the first post of my return;
7:34 a.m. July 9, 2012
A couple days ago I went without the afternoon sleep period and not entirely on purpose. I would not recommend doing this for anyone out there wanting to try a new cycle. I fell asleep before my bedtime and I was tired for much of the night. You are able to do it but just once. Any more than that and it becomes unhealthy.
I have had a dread of waking up. Initially I thought that this was because I was getting up so early but now I think it’s because I knew that I had to go for a run. So for a few days this week (including today), I won’t be going for runs. This is just to see if that the anxiety will be gone once I don’t have to worry about running.

After having gone a few days without running in the morning I can definitely say that that the desire to not wake up in the morning was directly because of the runs. Now I don’t really care if I wake up at 5:00 because I won’t have to be running. This kind of sucks but it’s the truth.
Another thing that has happened is that I consistently sleep in now. I will hit the snooze button half a dozen times and then I might doze off after my shower. This of course is not done on purpose but it is still happening.
