Show Notes

Welcome back to the rich universe of fitness, running and tech for some vintage gaslighting from your good friends Nick and Jon. This week we share one neat trick to lose weight through eating more and make a strong pitch to the podcast advertising gods. We go back to the well that is [Runner Pod Episode 5](http://runnerpod.com/e/355e57e21900faL/), Nick has been deleting sensitive data from our inbox, Jon’s mattress has a disappointing whoosh, and we pour one out for the iPhone SE—rest in power, tiny handsets. ## This week’s links * [Listen back to episode 5](http://runnerpod.com/e/355e57e21900faL/) * [Eating to lose weight](https://healthyeater.com/eat-to-lose-weight) * [No more iPhone SE… and will there be an iPhone SE2?](https://www.macworld.co.uk/news/iphone/iphone-se-2-2018-3500611/) * [Correction: WileyFox don’t seem to sell a 4” phone](https://wileyfox.com/) * [Apple Watch Series 4 for Runners](https://www.runnersworld.com/gear/a23103934/apple-watch-series-4-unveil/) * [Fancy smart watches: TAG Heuer Connected](https://www.t3.com/reviews/tag-heuer-connected-watch-the-best-android-wear-watch-ever) * Join our [Strava club](https://www.strava.com/clubs/you-don-t-look-like-a-runner-445740) and track runs with us. * Go to [runnerpod.com](http://www.runnerpod.com) where you can look through old episodes, read the show notes (please) and find some blog posts too.

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.
