Hey, everybody! I'm new here, but I wanted to share an achievement I'm pretty excited about. Tomorrow, I test for my red belt in Tae Kwon Do. Assuming I pass, that means I only have one belt before testing for my black belt. Over ten years ago, my wife talked me in to trying a tae kwon do class at a local school. I wound up dropping out before I took my first promotion test. Years later, I went back when my daughter wanted to start. It has been several years since I went back, and there have been times when I've taken a break for a few months. But I am really excited to reach this milestone.
I've had a crunching in my knee for about a year. A few months ago it became painful. A little over a month ago I joined my gym and started working out with my trainer about 3 weeks ago. Today I finally saw the doc, and he gave me the green light to keep going with my trainer. I was so scared he was going to say to stop or take it easier. All I have to do is work on building up the muscles around my knee (especially my quads) and my core. Oh, and "aggressively stretch" my hamstrings after every workout. So, YAY!
