The Bad Boy Running Podcast

Running is great, so why aren't the podcasts? Bad Boy Running is a podcast for runners (boys AND girls!) who are bored of the dull and dry podcasts currently on offer. Hosted by friends Jody Raynsford and David Hellard, both running journalists, bloggers and lovable idiots, the show features the conversations they'd have in the pub focusing as much on the camaraderie and social side of the sport as the technical.

David returns from a running weekend in Spain to talk about his race with Briggsy and Jody recounts Libby's Brighton half marathon endeavours in this partner-focused episode.

But not before taking aim at a certain Radio 1 DJ...

In this episode you'll hear:

  • Why Greg James might be the new Eddie Izzard (and why he's the unluckiest guy on earth picking this time to do his Three Peaks Challenge)
  • Why Drake is the dullest pop star in the history of music (no idea...)
  • David tries out some Eminem-style rapping (the result is just as bad as it sounds)
  • Why going to Barcelona is a bit like visiting Wales
  • David makes a bold claim about the finish at Seville Marathon...
  • ... and reveals his cheeky miscalculation which resulted in a PB for Briggsy
  • Jody reveals his "blind training run" strategy for getting Libby's mileage up on his final long run before the Brighton Half Marathon
  • Jody also reveals his one and only snowboarding experience and why he's unlikely to do it again
  • Why Jody's training in the last few weeks has been horrific (even though his body reckons everything's ok)
  • Where you need to be on your marathon plan for London Marathon, Brighton Marathon or any of the spring marathons
  • Book recommendation: How Not To Die
  • Why making your own milk is a total disaster (as per Scott Jurek's suggestions)
  • Jody's scathing review of How To Get Fit on ITV (he lasted until the cycling segment) 

Again no Silk Cut on this episode... it's just BBR chat!
