Sleep Cycles And The Big Bike Race.

My love affair with Le Tour De France is back in full swing.

And thus my sleep cycle is thoroughly b0rked. Coverage ends by 2AM each night. My normal sleep cycle is so delayed that falling asleep at 2AM would be quite acceptable (and is quite normal), but I can't.

Getting to sleep requires a lot of wind-down time without TV or computer. Sitting up until 2, excitedly watching the telly and tweeting at the same time, means it takes a good two hours before I'm asleep and even then it's often with chemical help.

I'm reluctant to record it and watch it the next day because it's so much fun, but if I can't get round this problem of being awake until 4 or 5AM, I may have to.

So I think I'll give myself until the weekend: if I'm not falling asleep sooner, I'll be a good little tyke and start recording it instead.

My brother J is a European football fanatic. What he does when the time difference makes it challenging for him to watch it live, he records it and then diligently avoids all media about the event so he can watch it not knowing what is going to happen.

But I can appreciate the mental edge given by the feeling of watching something 'live'. Good luck.

I wonder how much of that is a learned behaviour? I got into the habit of recording TV and watching it in bed and my time from turning off the WD or STB to being asleep is often best measured in seconds. It takes me much longer to get to sleep if there's no TV or similar to watch.
