Think I have my first instance of black toenail. Felt a slight discomfort at the tip of one of my toes on yesterday’s 15k and noticed today it’s nice and black at the tip / going under the toenail. I was contemplating posting a photo but some of you may be browsing the forum over mealtimes so I will spare you 😀
I know it’s quite common at longer, marathon level distances but am quite surprised to get it at 15k. I wonder if the heat made my feet swell more than they would normally and rub on my shoes.
Plenty of room in the shoes (I even took them back to the shop to add a half size despite the teasing from the lady there who said they were plenty big enough - sure she was right but they didn’t feel quite right so had to go bigger).
Anyone else experienced this at relatively short distances?
I’m not particularly bothered by it, not expecting it will stop me running, but interested to know if it’s common?
