Show Notes

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.

Game positive

The perfect watch may be here, but we don’t know as the PR guy is on holiday. This week Nick apparently has nothing to say and yet we seem to have gone long again. We talk Apple Watch and FitBit Ionic, plan Jon’s retirement, and get in the buff(s). Nick doesn’t watch TV, Jon doesn’t watch the Internet, and we ask “Can you buy a tattoo from a corner shop”? Whatever you want, we have it all this week. ## Show notes * [VM Footwear](http://vmfootwear.com/)—Nick’s guy who does portraits on trainers but not on trains * [Apple Air Pods](http://amzn.to/2ycYlg6) may be great for running after all.
