I went for a run on my lunch break today as well, I’ve been on a every other day thing for a couple of weeks now and I didn’t really wanna break it, but to be honest, I think I might have needed another rest day coz my hips are kind of hurting. I’m limping around at work. I did try and take it very easy and stretch a lot, but I don’t know if that’s a good idea coz I’m over flexible…
At my current assignment you always see people running during lunch breaks and in the summer you see classes outside. There’s mostly engineers where I am now, but I seem to think I’ve noticed this in the developer world too. People get out and move. The old stereotypes of the immobile basement programmer living off junk food and jolt is dead, well it should be.
Physical activity and smartness is scientifically proven to be linked, so anyone interested in coming up with tricky, clever and creative solutions need to realise this.
A programmer could also look like this awesome Victoria Secret’s model and be an amazing developer with ridiculous amount of Stack overflow points. Lyndsey Scott;
