I am also trying something new, well new to me. I am not sure if I was ever well hydrated before. So, thanks to someone (I don't remember who, if it's you, please let me know so I can thank you) was talking about this app called Water balance where I am able to track my water intake and actually see how hydrated I am. I am one of those visual learners, so for me to actually "see" how much water I am drinking and how hydrated I am motivates me to drink more and turn more blue. I think yesterday I had to drink 1.3L of water! To me that is a lot of water, but I also noticed I didn't get a headache either. Hopefully I can keep it up!
If you read my blog last week, you saw that I had a doctor's appointment to find out about the pain in my foot. Well, if you follow me on Facebook, (if you don't do it NOW) you know that today I got the results of my MRI. It shows that I have some arthritis in my sesmoid bone of my big toe (yes, I said that right, my big toe)

and that between my second and 3rd toe I have a neuroma,

and that I have Achilles contracture. The doctor is hoping that the Achilles contracture will be corrected with Physical therapy and that an adaptive orthotic will help relieve the pain of the sesmoid bone and the neuroma. So, I start physical therapy on New Year's eve. I don't think I have ever needed physical therapy as much as I have since I started running, but I definitely wouldn't change anything for the world, unless the doctor says I have too.
So, here's to nothing and to continually having to dig deep. I have no idea what 2013 will bring me fitness wise, but I am working on a Fitness to do list that I will turn into a blog post as soon as it's done.
What have you done lately that had you dig deep?
