I'm sure there are a ton of threads about runner's toe, but having come back from only a 5.5 mile run today to find a blood soaked sock again i thought i'd pick your brains.
I have a decent pair of running shoes recommended to me after my gait was analysed by my local running shop, they are a full size bigger and i don't do them up tightly at the top. I wear running socks too - not sure if that makes much of a difference though.
The problems are only on my right foot, and i have already lost 2 toe nails (the 2nd and 4th ones), now my little toe nail has gone black (just a matter of time before that one falls off) and today it was the middle toe nail that was bleeding - that's now gone a delightful shade or maroon too.
Any ideas what this can be? How i can just blooming well stop it from happening? I'm hobbling around now, and my 3 year old keeps treading on my foot and it's agony!
