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)?

Bandit at mile 5

OK juicer, it's time for some fitness, running and tech chat. This week it's actually about ethics in bluetooth headphone journalism. Nick's on the cans, Jon just wants to eat his dinner, and we try out some edgy current affairs jokes that are already out of date. As well as comparing notes on our latest runs, we get into some heavy follow up about ethics and consumption in consumer electronics, put together our Runner Starter Pack and explore the curious world of boozed up running. * [Cheese and wine marathon](https://secretldn.com/marathon-du-medoc-cheese-wine/) * [The Hovding Airbag cycle helmet—scroll down for the video](https://hovding.com/hovding3/) * [This fucking hat though lads](https://twitter.com/runnerpod/status/1198389536532901889) * Tell us about your [#runningstarterpack](https://twitter.com/hashtag/runningstarterpack?src=hashtag_click) on [popular hell site twitter dot com](https://twitter.com/runnerpod) * Send us shitty content and SEO proposals to [anything]@runnerpod.com * Join us on [Strava](https://www.strava.com/clubs/you-don-t-look-like-a-runner-445740) * Stickers still available if you [donate to Shelter](https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod) ...

Mark it zero, Jonny

## We have had listener feedback! * Jenny says she gets what we’re doing but it’s not really for her. She also told us about the ITV documentary _[Trouble in Poundland](http://www.itv.com/presscentre/ep1week25/trouble-poundland) _ and the fauxblerone—[Poundland’s own brand Brexit Toblerone](http://www.mirror.co.uk/money/poundland-selling-pre-brexit-toblerones-10647376). * Steve tweeted us to recommend _What I Talk About When I Talk About Running_ by Haruki Marukami; “it helped me think about running in a new way”, he told us. Nick and Jon have committed to reading it soon and dedicating some airtime to chatting through it. Why not [buy a copy](http://amzn.to/2uZ5nHD) now so you can join in (it’s also available on Audible, so you can think about it while running). * The book about running Matthew Inman (of _The Oatmeal_ ) is called _[The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances](http://amzn.to/2uudFpm)_ * This is what [Jon did on his stag do](http://monopolyboardpubcrawl.com)—but did he finish it? * Ben says [_Wild_ by Cheryl Strayed](http://amzn.to/2urO9zu) is a way better book about the PCT than the terrible book Nick has been reading ( _[The Last Englishman](http://amzn.to/2sXilB7)_ , see [episode 2](http://runnerpod.com/e/3549fb61ce9574L/)). Ben knows books well—he runs a [newsletter](http://tinyletter.com/benjiw) for reading recommendations and it’s really nice to get each month. * Nick and Jon have been [arguing about who loves High Fidelity the most](https://twitter.com/jonhickman/status/888997573389942785). * Nick recommends _Accidental Billionaires_ on Audible (or [as a book](http://amzn.to/2vXwiQB)). * If you have any feedback for us please tweet us @[runnerpod](http://www.twitter.com/runnerpod) or email [email protected] ## Jon’s marathon training Jon is now on week 12 of a [16 week plan](https://www.bupa.co.uk/health-information/directory/r/running-programme-marathon), ...
