My Eye!!!

This is not my eye but mine probably looked pretty much the same last week. More on that in a little bit.

The last 9 days of training have gone fairly well, the only bump in the road was getting some rust flakes in my eye during my boxing workout last Tuesday. It was very hot that day and initially I just thought that I got some sweat in my eye. As the day continued it started to hurt more and I thought maybe I'd gotten a scratch on my cornea (it's happened before and usually heals in a day). Wednesday it was worse and by the end of the day I knew I needed to get it looked at.

Thursday my wife was able to get me into an Ophthalmologist and he found the metal in my eye. To get the flakes out I had to face the fear of having a needle in my eye (and for 10 minutes). The rest of the day it hurt even more than before (after the numbing agent wore off). By Saturday it was 90% better.

O.K., now on to the work I did over the past 9 days:
