Slain by the dragon

Lethargy - noun - the quality or state of being lazy, sluggish, or indifferent

Still fighting off some sapping plague. Still weak. Barely able to do much in the gym. Continually yelling at myself behind my eyes.

Fight it. Fight it! FIGHT IT!

Seems like weeks since I slept. Months since I relaxed. When was the last time I was happy for more than a few hours?

And in the middle a utterly fruitless workout, my cell phone rings. I won't put it down for nearly five hours as an enterprise-scale disaster envelopes the corporation.

Some days, you slay the dragon. Some days, the dragon tears the ass out of you.

Today, I'm slain.
