"L Fives" and The dungeon of Pain

34F degrees with rain & snow here in beautiful Teton Valley today meant a session on the trainer in the basement, aka "The Dungeon of Pain", was in order. Today's workout seemed very doable at a glance but it punished me and left me wobbling up the stairs after I was done.

The L5 intervals crushed me today. I haven't seen a HR of 190 in a long, long time. 185 is normally a very high HR for me. The cool thing about the power meter is that it will quickly point out a weakness; mine is maintaining above-threshold power at a high cadence. I am a masher by nature. Maybe I should take up singlespeeding?
