Too Soon?

It is Friday Eve, and you know what that means... my rest day and a post with a lot of disturbing links and photos.

First off, I went to the grocery store last night and noticed this by the checkout:
 Way too soon man.. Halloween is pretty much my favorite holiday, but this is too soon!

If you follow my blog with any consistency, you've seen me crying over the fact I got some funky tightness going on in my left hamstring and occasionally groin. I'm super paranoid, and since this is my blog, I'm venting on it until I'm satisfied! It feels best running and for the first 2/3 of the day, then it gets random aches and tight again. Icing and elevating the leg when I get the chance, trying to get up and stretch it out during the day. I'll be interested to see how today goes without a run.  I'm mentally preparing myself to rest a few days if I don't see myself making marked improvement.

Now that the boo hooo woah is me part is over, here are some random photos to make you laugh or cringe:

My reaction this morning when my alarm went off:

I love horrible sloth gifs, click me to see a mildly offensive one.

What are you looking at?

A prayer a lot of you pray daily:

Your reaction realizing this is the end of my post:


  1. I had a similar reaction when I woke up at 4:15 and then realized I was not getting back to sleep even though I got home after midnight...

  2. Agreed about Hallowe' the holiday but too soon!
    An off day or two is never a bad idea, get your body right so you can reach your goals. An injury is never fun...
    GIF goodness, thanks for sharing.

  3. I'm digging all the Archer memes this week - one of my favorite shows (and the "Danger Zone" bit is just awesome!).

    I hope resting today helps with the tightness! But you may just need a few days off to really shake it.

  4. YIKES! LOTS of coffee for you today

  5. I don't know what I'll do with two days off lol probably mentally freak out

  6. <3 Archer, wish the seasons were longer!

  7. Yes, another case where short and quick is a bad thing :)

  8. Not too soon for Halloween! I need to just live in Halloween Town and call it a day.

  9. The gif with the people busting out of the doll boxes cracks me up. How terrifying!

    I hope a rest day is all you need and you're back to normal tomorrow!

  10. they need a halloween race filled with people jumping out to scare you and make you sprint!

    I'm hoping I mend up too! so odd that is just for a little bit of the day.
