just push a small piece of cotton wool underneath the corner that's growing in - that will lift it up and allow it to grow out.
if the toe is inflamed then soak it twice daily in very hot salt watet twice a day
and then don't cut the nail too short. if it's an ongoing ssue, persevere with the cotton wool.
Just for the record (zero replied but lots of views so am assuming someone is interested!?)
It was fabulous. Walking up the hills (and down the first v steep descent) was what everyone around me (about mid pack in the half) did.
The weather held and the scenery was beautiful. There was no chance to get bored as the terrain just kept on changing.
No need for any kit apart from trail shoes for the half IMO - water was supplied in cups and the 2 water stations both had jelly babies.
Hope to back next year.
I was persuaded by a "friend" to sign up for the half next weekend.
I've done a fair amount of halfs and marathons over the years but they've been all on road - with the sole exception of Hellrunner in 2009!
Have bought gloves, water bottle system and trail shoes - anything else I'm missing?
Anyone else going along? am glad (ish) that the biggest hill is right at the start - do some people walk up or is this considered a bit naff?
if you can't access the link it's because you don't need to pay because you're not in?
The magazines always arrive over 2-3 days at least.
there are reject and acceptance mags all over facebook - fon't think they send one lot and then the other?
