Show Notes

Nick and Jon finally get round to talking about running, weight training, and exercise tech from the perspective of two 30-somethings who spend way too much time coding, running, listening to podcasts, and talking about starting a podcast about running, weight training and equipment from the perspective of two 30 somethings who can terminate a recursion pretty neatly. This week we talked about: * are the microphones working? * the absolute shambles that is Poundland these days * “[some people are saying](https://www.bodybuilding.com/content/strength-training-for-fat-loss-building-a-bigger-engine.html)” you lose more weight on the weights than you do on the road * Nick will sell you some Kettlebells * Jon is training for a marathon * BUPA [marathon](https://www.bupa.co.uk/health-information/directory/r/running-programme-marathon), [half marathon](https://www.bupa.co.uk/health-information/Directory/R/running-programme-half-marathon) and [10km](https://www.bupa.co.uk/health-information/Directory/R/running-programme-10km) training plans * [goodgym](https://www.goodgym.org) * carrying tech while you sport * whether or not a gold plated USB cable will help us win advertising from Blue Apron Blue Apron haven’t called yet but they or you can find us on Twitter @[ngmoreton](http://twitter.com/ngmoreton) and @[jonhickman](http://www.twitter.com/jonhickman) and the show is @[runnerpod](http://twitter.com/runnerpod) You may wish to buy these things: * Govivo Running Belt * Shorts with big pockets Thanks to [Podiant](http://www.podiant.co)—professional-grade podcast hosting at a price you choose—for supporting You Don't Look Like a Runner.

Old Man Sweet Spot

Welcome back, it's been a long week. I'll be honest, I lost the show notes. But you don't read them anyway, and anything I write here will be lost like tears in rain. So, we will have almost certainly discussed fitness, running and tech. Let me know what this episode of the show is about by tweeting @runnerpod. Peace. ...

Between then and the mountain

The elite runners may nearly be back at the finish, but the green wave of podcasting is just setting off which means it's time for us to get started on this year we call 2018. We set ambitious goals, plan to infiltrate a gamergate stretching class, and get some long overdue slidey experience. Nick's been over the mountain, Jon's got a very long agenda, and we employ an unorthodox Runner Pod editing strategy. This conversation will conclude in Runner Pod 19: Between my Face and My Finger.

The one person who looks like a runner

We’re back, like the rappers are, to lay down diss tracks for one another through the medium of podcasting. This week our biggest fan doesn’t listen to the show, Nick gets stretched and Jon feels vibrations through his skull. If you want to listen along without spoilers, please watch _The Barkley Marathons_ before playing or pause at 43:25 and then hit us back, just to chat, truly yours, this is Stan. * [Top Four #36: Misheard Eddie Vedder Lyrics - Relay FM](https://www.relay.fm/topfour/36) * [Aftershokz Trekz Titanium bone conducting headphones](http://amzn.to/2FASmGJ) * [Reconcilable Differences #68: includes a discussion on The Barkley Marathons](https://www.relay.fm/rd/68) * [The Barkley Marathons: The Race That Eats Its Young – A Documentary Film](http://barkleymovie.com/) ...
