Breaking Skin

February 19, 2013

Well, I spared you all the "nasty" pictures of my dumb ass move with the box cutter, but this couldn't go undocumented! The first pic is right before I got the stitches out and the second is today.



Not to shabby eh? But in all seriousness, today is the 19th... so only 12 days ago that was a pretty nasty cut. I have to attribute the quick healing to my diet and health. The Dr also did a great job stitching me up... the "master" stitch remover (big props KP) did a fantastic job as well! I took care of it, kept it clean and was ready to rock and roll at the comp.

This morning I decided to just go balls to the wall with it (oddly enough this could be a literal statement in crossfit, but it wasnt today). The stitches are out and I "held together" at the competition. So a little tape, a small piece of gauze and I was ready to get my bar complex on. Ummm... maybe a little too soon. Looked down 8 minutes into the 10 minute WOD and there was blood coming out the bottom of the tape. My heart told me to keep going, my mind on the other hand (hahah, puns all over the place) said to stop. I didnt want to prolong my healing for the Open.

I am fine. It did not split open, just a tiny sliver of the new skin wanted to pull apart one last time! I will be back at it tomorrow!
