    On this episode, Jake and Pete are back from taking a mini plodcast vacation. Which basically means there wasn’t a show last week!

    087: Pep talks, pull outs, and new best buds

    087: Pep talks, pull outs, and new best buds

    Welcome to your weekly dose of running motivation.


    On this episode, we speak to running coach (and Jake’s 'new friend') Rory Horseman from Raced Coaching. Rory was targeting a personal best in this year’s Virgin London Marathon of 2:45, until injury struck! 

    Although clearly disappointed Rory has been coping well with the setback. His goal right now is to enjoy his running, rather than chasing times and smashing targets. 


     


    AskJake:  Each week, we'll take one of your questions and Jake will answer it.  Today, we're talking about long run duration, when training for a 10k.

    086: Squeaky cheese, smashing spines, and debut blogs

    Welcome to your weekly dose of running motivation.


    On this episode, Jake is FINALLY back from his European adventures and although still missing the glorious Greek sunshine, filo-wrapped feta, and geckos, he is happy to be, once again, recording the show from the home studio. 

    Today’s guest is Ed Harris - an ultra runner who not only finished third in this year’s Montane Summer Spine but has also created his own unique FKT (fastest known time) challenge: The Gwynne-Harris Round. 


    AskJake:  Each week, we'll take one of your questions and Jake will answer it.  Today, we're talking pausing watches when waiting for traffic!

    085: Midway training tips, and pocket-sized bananas

    085: Midway training tips, and pocket-sized bananas

    Welcome to your weekly dose of running motivation.


    Jake's STILL away in Skiathos!  Whilst the show's been recorded MANY times on beaches over the years, today is a PLODCAST FIRST.... because it's brought to you directly from "Little Banana Nudist Beach" (Just down the coast from Big Banana Beach!)


    Because Jake's flights home keep being cancelled, we've been unable to record a chat with a guest for today's show, but it's certainly not a lightweight episode, as Jake runs through his Top 10 Midway Training Tips


    AskJake:  Each week, we'll take one of your questions and Jake will answer it.  Today, we're talking about the amount of energy to take during marathons.

I Don’t Know if I am a “Runner” but I KNOW this...

I LOVE this podcast!! I am not caught up, because I started listening from the beginning but I am up through the end of April and loving it! (I listen on Podbean.)
I love Jake and Pete and I have learned so much! I only run 3.5 miles a day and I am VERY slow but I love every bit of this cast!

Thank You!

I’m not new to running but am new to listening to this podcast. I really enjoy the interviews and helpful running tips. I especially love the motivational messages at the end of each segment, and I love the friendly banter between Jake and Pete! I’m a short distance runner and the timing is perfect for me to listen while I’m doing my runs. Thank you for doing what you do and...keep up the great content!
