Last week, my housemates decided to buy some new shoes and start running. I was really happy when I heard this, because I fully support their endeavours when it comes to healthy living. Seeing their new, shiny shoes and hearing them talk about their running plans brought my mind to a few years ago, when I went running for the first time. I was excited, energetic and ambitious, and I remember that my first round of probably just two kilometres was extremely exhaustic. I also remember that I made some newbie mistakes, which I would not want my housemates (or anyone) to repeat. That’s why I dedicate this week’s installment of Geek Jitsu to the three things I did wrong when I started running!
