Help with bruised toe - can't run
Stick the pin through the toenail itself into the bit where the bruising is worst. That will allow the blood trapped under the nail to get out and should hopefully relieve the pressure.
And try to figure out why it happened on this run, if your trainers have been fine up till now. Was your toenail needing a trim? Is that why it was bashing against the front of your sho? Or did you just not lace your shoe tight enoug, so that your foot wasn't held tight against the back of your shoe...
I went to my GP today and I have a toe infection and have been given pencillin. I am also seeing a chiropodist tomorrow so hopefully I'll be back running soonish. I'm going for a bike ride tomorrow.
Incidentally I had the Nike Lunar Eclipse last year but I found them a bit narrow. I have a very wide foot and was advised to buy mens shoes (I'm female) so last year and this year I bought Mens Asics Kayano Gel 16. I ran my first marathon last May in them and they seemed ok, apart from the usual blisters.
