Never posted in here before. In fact never even been in this forum as Ultras frighten me....
Anyway, I did the Adidas 24 Hour Thunder Run thing at the weekend. Ran it as a pair, and I managed to run 15 laps so racked up 93 miles (very pleased with that). All ok afterwards too, except for a problem with my big toe nails. Both feet, but right one is killing me. I smacked my foot very hard and my nail will def come off in time, but not for a while. The bruising is starting to come out a bit but it's right at the base of my nail - at the very bottom. It's very very painful, as in can't walk properly painful. Can't even get my work shoes on either. I had a go at sliding a needle underneath the nail earlier and a load of liquidy stuff came out - helped a bit but not much. The real problem is further down than the needle will go.
Is there anything specific I can do to alleviate the symptoms, or is it a case of just being patient and letting the bruising come out? If it wasn't for this I'd be good to go again i think, so hoping to get it sorted. As much to take the pain away to be honest - it's killing me! I was going to carry on with the needle thing, but not sure if I'm best just leaving it?
I thought someone on here may have had a similar problem before, so just looking for any advice really.
