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)?

Season 2 Episode 1: Dad++

Welcome to Season 2! What awaits you inside? Will there be a controversial new younger character who changes the dynamic of the show? Will Jon remember how to read the outro? Has the Audio Veteran delivered? You can probably guess the answers to all of these questions but it's about the journey so grab your stickers, pour a juice and settle in. --- Oh a quick plug. We briefly mention in the show that Jon is running the Great North Run for charity (mate). It's a charity that's really important to Jon's family. We didn't really get into it and that race will be run by the time we tape the next show, so if you'd like to know more here are some links: * [The charity is the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Charitable Fund ](https://rohcharity.org/). * [This is the Just Giving page complete with a tl;dr backstory](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/corrina-hickman) * [This is the full story about why he chose this charity if you want to know more. It's a bit emotional, sorry](https://www.facebook.com/899120505/posts/10162262870665506?sfns=mo) *Remember: only the good ones read the show notes* ...

Please, Mr Robot is my father's name

"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 ...
