Show Notes

We talk about environments—from the perfect gym to urban running—and their effect on our training mindset, and we discuss plateaus and winning the battle with your mind. Nick has big news, Jon ups his recording set up game with dramatic results, and inevitably somebody mentions Poundland and Toblerone. ## This week * Will there be a posthumous release of the [missing tapes?](https://yodollar.podiant.co/admin/blog/5/) * Please do not send us any reviews of armbands. Unless you’re going to say you don’t like them. * Nick’s weight loss: [Mission Accomplished](https://www.instagram.com/p/BXHyVj5AJd_/?taken-by=roundonefight) * BMI (body mass index) [explainer](http://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/3215.aspx?CategoryID=51) and [calculator](http://www.nhs.uk/Tools/Pages/Healthyweightcalculator.aspx). * Rocky gyms / old school gyms / back street gyms… [proper gyms](https://sabotagetimes.com/life/in-remembrance-of-proper-gyms) * I heart PB: some notes on [Perry Barr](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perry_Barr), a place dear to Nick and Jon. * [Alexander Stadium](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Stadium), in Perry Barr, where Jon got training tips from heptathlete [Denise Lewis](http://www.uka.org.uk/ba-home-straight/hall-of-fame-athletes/denise-lewis/). * We’ve been recommended a book: [Long Road, Hard Lessons: Ireland to Japan by Bicycle - A Gruelling Test of a Father and Son’s Relationship](http://amzn.to/2wh0XbS) by Mark & Sam Swain. ## tl;dr “[Nobody is watching, nobody is judging. I was convinced people could see me struggling to do a mile and that they had opinions. Stupid head](https://twitter.com/jonhickman/status/891948140663902208).” ## Coming soon… * We _will_ talk about running watches. * Jon _will_ clear his pins about running familiar routes and the 1997 Elizabeth College B String 1600 metres race. * Nick _will_ talk about yoga.
