    #186: Ketamine update, The Mid-South gravel event, basal metabolic rate

    This week we begin with a bit of an update on Patrick's treatment with Ketamine. His in-office sessions have come to a close and he relates the magnitude of recovery he has experienced. Selene talks about her upcoming plans to head to Oklahoma for the Mid-South (formerly Land Run 100). She and Patrick talk tire choice, soil types, and tire pressure among other gravel ride concerns. Basal Metabolic Rate. Sounds sexy, doesn't it? Patrick made a trip down to the South Bay to visit Silicon Valley Sports Medicine where he got together with a former UMASS cycling teammate to do a basal metabolic test and find out just how many calories his diet should include each day. He was surprised by the results and talks about some initial changes to his diet.

    #184: Zone 5 in the winter, how long does a gravel event need to be?

    #184: Zone 5 in the winter, how long does a gravel event need to be?

    This week Selene takes on a listener question regarding some of the online training challenges that cause competitors to go into zone 5 with each installment. Is that a bad thing? How does it affect developing base miles?With so many new gravel events on the calendar, Patrick asks the question, how much is enough? Are organizers really doing themselves and their participants a service by offering an epically long course? What is your sense of accomplishment if you didn't do the long course?

    #183: New Year's intentions, mountain bike design

    #183: New Year's intentions, mountain bike design

    It's a new year, and hopefully not a new you. You're fine. But what do you want to change from years past and how should you think about it? Selene takes on that question, suggesting maybe we think about intentions rather than resolutions. Patrick has been nerding out on mountain bike design. Again. He noticed that all his fastest times on descents were on a short travel bike, not some long-travel monster. What gives? He had to go looking for the answer, which surprised him. Initially.

    #182: Andy Pruitt, Christmas

    This week Selene looks back at the career of sports physiologist Andy Pruitt and his work with Specialized and his leadership in bicycle fit. Pruitt is retiring from his work with Specialized, and he has been a steady source of wisdom and insight for Selene over two decades. Patrick takes a look at Christmas. He gives a little thought to what he'd like for Christmas, but more to what he'd like to give. And unlike wind chimes, it may not be all that expensive to give to most everyone in his life.

    #181: Reader questions, an eMTB ride with Mark Weir

    This week Selene takes on a bevvy of listener questions that were intriguing, but not quite meaty enough to carry a whole segment. She covers artificial joints, diabetes, gravel events and more. Patrick and some board members from the California Mountain Biking Coalition got to join mountain bike legend Mark Weir for an eMTB ride on a private ranch in Marin County where Weir and friends have been building trails for years. It was a fresh opportunity to see some of the strengths and weaknesses of eMTBs as well as hear Weir talk about just why he is such a convert.
