Show Notes

How do you choose the right swimming lane or the right pace group for a club run? We talk about the challenges and benefits of mixed ability group work and along the way we discuss fitting training into our lives.

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".

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* ...
