I’ve been battling some germ for the last several days and I have finally run up the white flag. I managed to run 3 miles yesterday on solar power alone (it was the first sight of the sun in 8 days) but today I am down for the count. I squeezed out a slow mile but it wasn’t anything worth noting. I put in an earbud and let Beyoncé carry me through. My pace was as slow as a jog can get and my heart rate was well into my aerobic zone. I plan to rest for the remain of the evening and head to bed early. Here’s to hoping that my immune system kicks this germ to the curb by morning!
