- Running with Jake: The PLODcast. Short, punchy, and full of tips, tricks, and motivation.

Episode 4 - "Injuries, goals and healthy flapjacks"

On this episode, we chat to Lisa; after a big injury, life got in the way of her running. Will Jake help her back on track to find her mojo again?

Why a slight shift in mental attitude can make all the difference to your training and why it's so important to really care about your goal. This is audio from a Facebook live that Jake did a couple of months ago. If you want more FB live tips, check out the Running with Jake Facebook page.

Jake chases a complete stranger round a park and shouts "Excuse me...who are you running from?" again (and somehow doesn't get punched!). VIDEO EVIDENCE is here! Thanks for being an awesome sport Rebekah, from The Event Foundry (If YOU let Jake chase you around a park, we'll plug your business too!)

#AskJake: Each week, we'll take one of your questions and Jake will answer it. On this episode, Amelia want to know whether she can still run if she's got a cold". Jake's not a doctor but says that if you feel the cold above your neck, then yes you can train to a lower intensity. If however you can feel it on your chest, it's a "no no"! (Skip to 26:10 to hear it)

Running can be both a beautiful and a challenging business. Somedays you will be leaping out of the door before you’ve barely even finished lacing up your trainers, when on others you will find your mojo sulking in a corner and refusing to play. That’s why we created Running with Jake: The PLODcast. Short, punchy, and full of tips, tricks, and motivation.

Our podcast features some brilliant guests, from Olympic athletes through to real runners with real stories, Jake shares his best practices to help you get the most out of your running, and you can be certain Producer Pete is always on hand to offer a ‘non-running guy’ perspective on most things!
