I am very new to this whole running thing, I have never been inclined to run before and at the grand old age of 34 I got strong armed in to running the Reading Half marathon yesterday.
I did complete it without stopping in a time of 2hours 15mins, not sure what that means but what I do know is that for about the last 2 miles both of my big toe nails were really painful, now as it was sooo cold and wer yesterday I just assumed it was that making my toes hurt so didnt really think much even when I took my triainers off and my left big toe nail was still blue.
However by the time I got home the pain in my left toe was very painful but got better with elevation and ice. Looking at it today it is still very painful and by the looks of it I have got a very big blister right under the nail.
My question although long winded is: Is this normal? If so what is best practice? ( I am very screamish!)
Thank you in advance for your replies. I am sure this has been dealt with before and I apologise for rehashing old content!.
