This Prime Day Theragun deal is going to help me survive my first marathon

Earlier this week, I did something potentially very stupid and signed up for my first marathon. Not only does this mean I'm going to have to run 26.2 miles in a row, but I'm going to have to cover endless miles in the weeks and months leading up to the big day.

As any runner knows, that means I need a recovery plan. After a long run, I'll have to knead my aching quads, hamstrings, and glutes back to health, so I can go again the next day. To help, I've decided to snap up the Prime Day deals on this Therabody Theragun Mini 4th Generation. Check out the deal in full below:

Today's best Therabody Theragun deal

Like the other best massage guns, this pocket rocket uses percussive massage and swappable heads to get into those hard-to-reach creases and nurse aching muscles back to health. 

It's slender and quiet, so you can slip it into a gym bag and work on your mobility before doing some support work. It'll also go in my travel bag so, when I'm doing long runs away from home or the office, I can take a quick 10 minutes and knead some of the strain away post-run without hauling a large, ungainly handset around. It's also cheaper than most full-size handsets too, clocking in at just $159.99 right now. 

Research has shown using percussive massage devices such as this one can aid in post-workout recovery, so this little tool will help me recover faster, allowing me to get more runs in and (hopefully) crush my goal time.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

These Android games support Bluetooth controllers and they're better for it
