So it was back to the gym today. I worked primarily upper body due to the knee injury, threw in some treadmill and 100 crunches on the exercise ball. So not too shabby. I'm hoping to be able to kickbox tomorrow night. I iced my knee tonight and it is a bit better, but still far from 100%. Of course, I can kickbox and just keep things on a lower level to prevent further injury.
I discovered tonight at dinner that Hagerspatch has a 5k race, so this compelled me to look and see if there were others....and there are. This is another one of my goals...to do a 5K. Now there is no way I'd be ready for this year, but next year, I could be if I worked it and figured out how to train. Definitely food for thought.
Most of you know that I am still having extensive burping that gall bladder removal did not solve. My surgeon seems to think I am an air swallower, which I don't buy into because it had such a sudden onset. My PCP doesn't want to touch me due to my gastric bypass as she feels it is a side effect of that. So what do I do? I could be lactose intolerant perhaps? Should I go see a gastroenterologist? I feel as if I've hit a wall and still don't have an answer and the "live with it" option does not make me happy as I burp all freaking day long. Interestingly enough, The Brit seemed to think it was better after my gall bladder came out, but the last few days, I have noticed an increase again. This is insanity and I have no clue what to do about it. I am certain there is an answer and a solution out there if I could just go in the right direction.
