Show Notes

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?

Little snowflake, reading his Transformers book

It’s time to kick off your trainers and grab yourself a nourishing bowl of nonsense soup. This week Nick attempts to talk himself down from a major purchase by reading its tech specs and features out on mic. We talk about our broken old man backs, plan some dream desk setups, and go shopping for Lycra at Poundland. Jon drops an easy catch, Nick accepts that he just likes running, and we really hope that someone plays the noise.

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".

Between my face and my finger

Hello and welcome to You Don’t Look Like a Runner—an avant garde podcast, making unusual editing decisions and challenging your expectations of what this series is all about. This is part two of an epic new year chat which started in episode 18. This week Jon goes round the houses and Nick regrets not making a purchase. We discuss lightbulbs, voice assistants and Greggs (the baker). Nick is desperate to go to bed, Jon is not, and we spend a long time talking about the OnePlus 5T. ## A word from our sponsor Thanks to our podcasting host [Podiant](http://podiant.co/) for supporting _You Don’t Look Like a Runner_.
