I have worked at full concentration for such stretches.  It used to be a 
lot easier to do so though.   If I try it for too many days straight I 
feel like my head is going to explode and I become irritable  and get 
into my "commander in an air raid" mode.  Not pleasant.

I habitually demand more than 8 hours of productive work a day of 
myself.  Fortunately not all effective work requires my full concentration.
