And some of us don't. Having lost several toe nails I would say the same. Keep very clean, well trimmed and wait - it won't take long.

Tiamo - were you the chap doing all the 66 challenges?

Get some steristrips to hold the nail down to stop it catching or rubbing. It will come away eventually.

cheers for advice, that was basically what the conclusion i'd come too...

PH: No, they don't hurt to run on.
Only thing that hurts is my right calf which i messed up 4 miles into the 50K!

Torry - no, i only ran full distance on 66th run.

It was Andy McMenemy who did the full challenge.

Stumpy - pics, mmmmm bit late now, would've been much better to get those done within days of doing the deed!

We met Andy then, when he was in Aberdeen. Top man.

I tend to get rid of them as quickly as I can once the nail has lifted from the bed - I don't like the feeling of them not being attached properly so a week after the race when my feet have settled down, after a hot bath I sterilise a pair of sharp scissors and get to work. This probably isn't what any professionals would recommend but it works for me ;)

I'm with RWR. I hate to have them hanging on, they end up being more uncomfortable than no nail at all. Hot bath, get rid, end of. They grow back eventually :-)

Got something to say?
