Energy Drain

The sun rose soft and inviting,
Twenty minutes later it was kicking ass,
Bright and surgical.
Two hours later it had me begging for mercy
And only hanging onto the beach
Because the family was there and
We set up a big as eff canopy.

Drained energy.

This was after a ride and a run,
During a very short swim,
Before a twenty minute walk to lift weights
And enjoy a lemon water ice.
All combined
The sun put a number
On my weak butt.

Drained energy.

But tomorrow, I’m back at it,
Earlier in the day if I must.
It’s challenge month and I’ve got
Nose breathing only
During a run in store for me.
Later I’ll ride and lift,
Hopefully no canopy…

That’s the real energy drainer.
