This week Selene takes on weight loss once again. She addresses the problems with seeing that as necessary as well as seeing cycling as a vehicle for it, rather than an end in itself. And yet, she still accepts that it is an important goal to many people and she’s a great guide for how to do it, so it may be that some of the issue here is her role as a fitness writer and making peace with providing guidance on something that may not make your cycling experience any more valid.
Patrick’s pull this week isn’t exactly cycling-related. He has been accepted as a patient at a center that provides treatment to people with depression through Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. Given how often Paceline listeners have shared that they, too, wrestle with depression, it seems appropriate to share this journey and how his first treatment session unfolded. It’s an unusual and innovative approach to dealing with depression and as he reveals, not one that is for the faint of heart.
