Show Notes

Nick and Jon finally get round to talking about running, weight training, and exercise tech from the perspective of two 30-somethings who spend way too much time coding, running, listening to podcasts, and talking about starting a podcast about running, weight training and equipment from the perspective of two 30 somethings who can terminate a recursion pretty neatly. This week we talked about: * are the microphones working? * the absolute shambles that is Poundland these days * “[some people are saying](https://www.bodybuilding.com/content/strength-training-for-fat-loss-building-a-bigger-engine.html)” you lose more weight on the weights than you do on the road * Nick will sell you some Kettlebells * Jon is training for a marathon * BUPA [marathon](https://www.bupa.co.uk/health-information/directory/r/running-programme-marathon), [half marathon](https://www.bupa.co.uk/health-information/Directory/R/running-programme-half-marathon) and [10km](https://www.bupa.co.uk/health-information/Directory/R/running-programme-10km) training plans * [goodgym](https://www.goodgym.org) * carrying tech while you sport * whether or not a gold plated USB cable will help us win advertising from Blue Apron Blue Apron haven’t called yet but they or you can find us on Twitter @[ngmoreton](http://twitter.com/ngmoreton) and @[jonhickman](http://www.twitter.com/jonhickman) and the show is @[runnerpod](http://twitter.com/runnerpod) You may wish to buy these things: * Govivo Running Belt * Shorts with big pockets Thanks to [Podiant](http://www.podiant.co)—professional-grade podcast hosting at a price you choose—for supporting You Don't Look Like a Runner.

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".

You're a monster

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.

Old Man Sweet Spot

Welcome back, it's been a long week. I'll be honest, I lost the show notes. But you don't read them anyway, and anything I write here will be lost like tears in rain. So, we will have almost certainly discussed fitness, running and tech. Let me know what this episode of the show is about by tweeting @runnerpod. Peace. ...
