Show Notes

"I learned a new word today: gaslight" It’s not [like God taking a photograph](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19UROAIbtlw) but it’s apparently Nick’s favourite word. What else is happening? We go back to school to do some basic French, remedial German, and complex maths. Nick makes the best of a tragedy, Jon brings a surprise, and we layer up for winter runs. ## Show Notes * Thread is one of Jon’s other shows—in [this episode he mostly talks about this episode of Runner Pod](http://thread.fm/e/35ac386bb51230/). Rate, review, subscribe, and check for Jon’s many tropes. * [Matt Le Tissier](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Le_Tissier) does not know Jon but he was on one of our favourite podcasts, [Quickly Kevin, will he score?](https://www.quicklykevin.com/episodes/2017/2/23/matthew-letissier-s01e01). * [Guernsey Patois](http://guernseydonkey.com/?p=3371)—a language neither of us speak. * [Lady in a tube is going cheap for Black Friday](http://amzn.to/2hD5bsB)—she knows all the Moana songs. * [Do more with Amazon Alexa - IFTTT](https://ifttt.com/amazon_alexa). * [Teksta Voice Recognition Puppy](http://amzn.to/2hEXnXb). * [The ever anxious eye of Sauron](https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/lotr/images/f/f5/Eye_of_sauron.jpg/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/350?cb=20100402161911). * [Nuneaton bowling alley siege: Man arrested - BBC News](http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-41714114) * [Through axle wheels](http://road.cc/content/feature/171353-how-fit-and-remove-through-axle-wheels). * [Should you change to tubeless tyres? - Cycling Weekly](http://www.cyclingweekly.com/news/product-news/should-you-change-to-tubeless-tyres-177480). * [Cycle to Work scheme: everything you need to know - BikeRadar](http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/article/everything-you-need-to-know-about-the-cycle-to-work-scheme-18360/). * [Premiership Football Facts and Trivia by John White](http://amzn.to/2jvXapY). * [Answer Me This](http://amzn.to/2hDiJV7) is also available in the Nick Moreton Memorial Toilet Library. * [The Holding Role](https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/theholdingrole/episodes/2015-03-16T15_38_38-07_00)—a thing Nick used to make, which featured a football quiz. * Another podcast episode where Jon is pain the arse: [From the earth to the electronic thumb | Beware of the Leopard - The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast](http://btlpodcast.com/e/35a70a8ea25876/). * [This smart salt shaker has voice controls but can’t grind salt - The Verge](https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/8/3/16088526/smalt-smart-salt-shaker-app-alexa-smartphone). * A lesson in trusting the audience, from George Lucas: [From my point of view the Jedi are evil. - YouTube](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llLKar19XhA).

You're in a band

Let's be honest, you weren't expecting another weekly show this soon but here we are nonetheless. This week we recorded face to face for only the second time, so things get weird quickly. We discuss the Moreton family biscuit barrel, Nick has to call a man about his head, Jon can't make a connection, and it turns out _we're in a band_. ## Want a sticker? We made some Stickers. They're quite lovely, great quality and they feature the Runner Pod logo. [Your laptop could look like this beaut](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/1001866442415988737). If you'd like one we want you to have one and here's what you need to do... If you're in the UK, make a donation of £3.75 **or more** to Shelter by visiting: [https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod). Email us your address and we will send you a Runner Pod Sticker. If you're outside the UK, please email us first to discuss so we can look at the postage situation. We hope to accommodate all reasonable requests. The ins and outs of the fundraiser will be discussed in Episode 29. Please note we have limited supplies because Nick took loads, so it's first come first served. ## This week's links * [Rutland Half & Marathon](https://www.therutlandmarathon.co.uk/copy-of-the-rutland-marathon) * Join our [Strava club](https://www.strava.com/clubs/runnerpod) and track runs with us. * Go to [runnerpod.com](http://www.runnerpod.com) where you can look through old episodes, read show notes and blog posts. * If you have any comments, questions or thoughts please tweet us [@runnerpod](http://www.twitter.com/runnerpod) or you can email us [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]).

Taper Week

The tapering episode: we go short this week, but we have time to catch up on our current routines and discuss the merits of cross training days. Jon is paranoid about jinxing his marathon, Nick is marked on a scale of 1-10 for his camping skills, and we get hypothetical about a leaked refresh of Apple Watch. ## This Week * [Jon's marathon](http://www.guernseymarathon.gg): 9 days left. * [The benefits of cross training](https://www.runnersworld.com/for-beginners-only/whats-the-benefit-of-cross-training "Link: https://www.runnersworld.com/for-beginners-only/whats-the-benefit-of-cross-training"). * [Cycling as cross trainin](https://www.runnersworld.com/ask-coach-jenny/how-to-improve-running-performance-with-cycling "Link: https://www.runnersworld.com/ask-coach-jenny/how-to-improve-running-performance-with-cycling")g. * [Apple Watch leaks and rumours](http://www.techradar.com/news/apple-watch-3-release-date-news-and-rumors). * Is the [TomTom](https://www.tomtom.com/en_us/sports/running/) actually the watch Nick needs? * Is Nick [the outdoor type](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-r2BARj6Oo)?
