Weird little table

Chasing a PB, we're dropping our second "weekly" episode this week. In this episode we track down Fat Nick on Strava and find out if Chiropractic is a thing. We talk marathons, pilates, and get two tickets to Nick's post-rowing gun show. Nick has done his homework, Jon dreams of SIS gels, and we still don't get to talk about our amazing new Runner Pod stickers. * [Science Vs on Chiropractic](https://www.gimletmedia.com/science-vs/chiropractors-theyre-cracked) * [Rock'n'Roll Marathon Liverpool](http://www.runrocknroll.com/liverpool/) See you next "week".

Wake up wrist

You've waited too damn long for this episode for Jon to get precious about show notes. We talked a lot about his watch, and a bit about Panini albums. Or maybe we didn't. That bit might have got cut. Things to do: * Make sure you watch Halt and Catch Fire soon * Join our running club on [Strava](https://www.strava.com/clubs/runnerpod) * Jon wrote up how he feels about his headphones for a thing he never finished. Read that on the [blog](http://runnerpod.com/b/363f21f330de28/) See you next "week". Thanks to our hosting company Podiant for getting us into your ears.

WrestleMania, running to survive

Just like that, just like that, we're here to chat shit about fitness, running and tech. This "week" we teach you a life hack to be Andy Serkis on the cheap and get our excuses in for a series of terrible runs. We refuse to apologise for an extended chat about JavaScript, Nick does some ERL learning the hard way, Jon has no mates on Strava, and we almost certainly over promise on the show notes (which none of you read anyway). - [Pronation, explained](https://www.runnersworld.com/running-shoes/pronation-explained) - [Gait analysis](https://www.runnersneed.com/expert-advice/gear-guides/gait-analysis.html) - [Footbalance custom insoles](https://www.footbalance.com/) - [Vue.js](https://vuejs.org/) - [The Mania Half](http://themaniahalf.co.uk/) results are in - [Jon's WrestleMania ear worm](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xv_hYvj_g3w) - [Vote for us in this nonsense](http://www.britishpodcastawards.com/vote) just like [Jillian did](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/985282970402590721?s=09) - Be [Jon's friend on Strava](https://www.strava.com/athletes/jonhickman). He's desperate. - [You Don't Look Like a Runner is now a club on Strava](https://www.strava.com/clubs/445740) because obviously. ...

Memory in the battery

It’s the show that changes every week! It’s Runner Pod, and we are here once again to talk about fitness, running and lithium ion batteries. This week we are in a self-congratulatory mood off the back of the triumph that was episode 21 (or was it 20? Nobody is sure anymore). We talk about adjusting training plans when life happens, Nick makes a bold claim that something which has run once is, in fact, a tradition, Jon chooses shoes wisely, and we audition for /I Love the 90s/. Please ensure that you fully discharge your podcast player’s batteries before you play the show. * [Battery Memory effect](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_effect) * [The Jog Shop 20—South Downs 20 mile race](http://www.jogshoponline.co.uk/thejogshopjog.html) We are hosted by Podiant and you can be too.
