Show Notes

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".

It's the cyanide, stupid

Is this the real life, or scripted reality? This week, we’re caught in a time travel paradox as Nick gets his wish for an evening record—and instantly regrets it. We talk marathon recovery, we discuss bat and poo memes, we get emotional about cricket, and we drink (responsibly). Nick proves that he’s a grown up, Jon proves that he’s not, and we deliver on our listener guarantee to be “increasingly infrequent” with our longest edit yet. ## This Week * [Jon’s Rider](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/909028521955258368) * The scientists _do_ say [that cashews are poisonous, sometimes](http://www.living-foods.com/articles/rawcashew.html) * Amaretti Biscuits are made of [apricot kernels, and contain cyanide](https://www.robinsandsons.com/blogs/blog/180247431-history-of-amaretti-biscuit) and people used to like doing this [flying trick](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1ppo21Enj0) with them. * [Bat video](https://www.facebook.com/pg/tadhgflemingvideos/videos/) * [Tinder date poo lady](http://mashable.com/2017/09/05/poop-tinder-date-fire-department/#y1hsB8FuFaqo) * The Dennis Quaid movie [_Frequency_](http://mashable.com/2017/09/05/poop-tinder-date-fire-department/#y1hsB8FuFaqo) * [Batter bits at the chippy](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scraps_\(batter\)) * Cramps, electrolytes, powders etc. [some thoughts here](https://www.runnersworld.com/health/how-to-treat-leg-cramps-while-running) * Mile/km markers—how should they count?
