Good morning, Readers!
Also, I will be wearing a finger splint. I have an injured finger. It hurts. A lot. My finger also looks like a corpse finger. It's all purple-y and gross. I also can't move it much without a lot of pain.
I currently have it in a finger splint. Our clumsy household has had similar injuries before, so we actually had two finger splints in our medicine drawer. Thank goodness, 'cause I'm out of medical tape.
But how did it happen? Well, I was teaching last night and so while teaching people to throw a proper punch, hand my palm out for target practice. One guy decided that punching up instead of out was the order of the day, and he punched the tip of my fingers, pulling my finger back. There was a cracking noise, so I'm assuming that the joint shifted, but I could also bend my finger just fine afterwards, so I'm assuming that the pain I have now is just due to the swelling etc, and with rest and ice, it should be fine in a week or two.
It does pose a problem for training tonight, however. I'm still going. I won't be able to do any grip work, so pull ups and chin ups are out, but holding lighter weights, and doing push ups and sit ups won't be a problem. Squats will be a definite problem, but that's because my thighs hurt so much from Tuesday...
Hopefully I'll sill be able to punch, since it's not the knuckle that's affected. I'll give it a shot, anyway, and if it doesn't work, I'll work on my forms in the back or something. I think it'll be okay. We'll see.
But yes, do come vissity broken old me at Ottawa ComicCon. HERE is the blog post with all the info on where I can be found.
I have to go figure out how to type without making so many damned mistakes!
