Incremental increase

Ok, so my chronometer is dead, which means any run I go on until I fix it will be naked runs.  No time updates, but distances will likely be known.

Last night I ran about 1.5 miles (or, hated running for 1.5 miles), and physically felt drained at about 1.25.  My “happy zone” is somewhere between 1 and 1.5, but I’m sure that’ll be extended in short order.  Meanwhile, I’m almost certain my shoes are garbage, as well.  I’ll either go to Lukes or Fleet Feet in the next few weeks and get that all taken care of.


The morning after runs are always interesting.  There’s this little achiness in the trunk muscles—sides, stomach, ribs—and just a little tiredness in the legs, but nothing major.  The morning after that is usually when my soreness sets in, until I get back into some semblance of running shape.


In other thoughts…


How do you formally implement institutional curiosity where an organization collects data just for the sake of collecting data?  The reason to do this is because the data you KNOW contains useful information fits within the filters already in place—accounting software, marketing software, etc.  But the data that you don’t know contains useful information never gets collected unless you’re just curious.  But curiosity doesn’t pay the bills, unless you get lucky and find a golden ticket among all the rubbish data, and the curious companies actually collect that rubbish. 


So, how do you formally implement institutional curiosity?  I’m not sure I know the answer to that.
