  • BOOM! Bad Boy Running Podcast gets a mention in a national running magazine!

  • Some serious discussion about threshold running and getting it right
  • David signs up to run his first proper ultra and wants some advice
  • Jody reveals his theory of distance and why running a 'short' ultra and running a marathon are the same (kind of)
  • Why David's choice is a BAD first ultra...
  • The big 'what kit to take' debate (and another dig at Edinburgh Marathon)
  • The No.1 reason to run an ultra (according to Jody)

The second of the two-parter with Mudstacle's Pete Rees.

In the second half of the episode the gang discuss:

  • What the hardest obstacle race is in the UK
  • How to judge how tough a course is if you're a newbie when the name tells you NOTHING about it
  • How to prepare for an obstacle course race (no, it's not drinking more...)
  • Why neoprene is the future of OCR fashion
  • The REAL story behind Pete's red shorts (it's funny)
  • Pete and Jody revisit David's exit from Special Forces Hell Week... and why Pete was partly responsible for David's current hatred by the entire Filipino population
  • And much more

If you've not listened to Part 1, go back and listen to that first.

And, at last, it ends....

The final day of the 12 Days of Bad Boy Christmas.

We're talking abuse received while running.

And it seems to have happened a lot.

To Jody.

But we want to know what heckling you've received.

Yes, it's no longer Christmas. Or 2015. Or even January...

... but it's here. At last.

For the eleventh day, we talk running music and what gets you moving.

And then it descends into farce...

... culminating in possibly the worst attempt at reggae ever recorded.

Worth listening if only to hear that.
