Password Fatigue & The Foghat Principle
In the mean time my left hip and upper leg have been giving me intermittent problems but never when I am running. I think it is referred pain from my back and it seems worse after lying down or twisting my back like when bowling a cricket ball. As I say it has so far not troubled me at all whilst running. Will be interested to see how it reacts to some more intense efforts.
Here was last weeks sessions.
Mon 18th Feb
11k 51:37 (4:41 HR 157) AM. Ran 1.5k with Kewell in the Afternoon. He is getting fit for the football season.
15.3k 1:23:30 (5:27 HR 138).
6.5k 33:21 (5:07 HR 139)
11k 54:41 (4:58 HR 149)
15.3k 1:22:25 ( 5:23 HR 141)
Rest. Glad my rest day was on a day when the temp got to 40C!
25k 2:19:32 ( 5:34 HR 142)
I was interested to see that Password Fatigue was been officially added to the vernacular.
This noun means the level of frustration caused by having too many different passwords to remember, resulting in an inability to remember even those most commonly used.
At work, I certainly had a lot of different systems and applications that all had passwords which expired at different times leaving me with a whole range of IDs and passwords. It was not uncommon for me to have to enter a password 20 to 30 times a day. I turned this into a goal setting plus by always selecting passwords that directly related to my current running goals. For example, for the last three months of the last year all my passwords pointed to my target of doing 400k in December. Before that they related to the Melbourne Marathon. So every working day I was able to repeatedly reinforce my goals by entering my passwords.
Now that I am on leave, it has left a bit of a hole in my goal setting. So am thinking of putting a password on my home computer just so I get to the same effect.
Does anyone know the Foghat Rule?
