My knee is still cranky so I took a walk around the park instead of doing kickboxing. With the added errands after the loop, I clocked approximately 4 miles. Woo hoo!!! That’s about 443 calories burned according to the on-line calories calculator I found at: http://www.healthstatus.com/cgi-bin/calc/calculator.cgi. Despite wearing a knee brace, it was still uncomfortable walking. I think I may pick up a new pair of sneakers. 🙂
I had the pinky looked at by a Dr. Andrew J. Weiland, MD, a hand specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery. The consultation didn’t take very long but they took x-rays and everyone there was especially nice and professional. I did, indeed, tear a tendon but there is nothing that can be done at this point. It will always be a little sore and sensitive when I do kickboxing. The X-ray showed a small mallet fracture as well. It’s probably a good thing that I tried to address the very crooked pinky finger with duct tape and paper clips a la McGiver. 🙂 Otherwise, the pinky would have been really askew!
Next, I will visit my regular doctor and see how my cholesterol level is doing.
