Keep Toenails Short


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Sounds gross, but make sure toenails are SHORT before exercising. I learned my lesson after a day of skiing I now have to go to the podiatrist and have them stick a needle in my toe. I haven't been able to workout hard in over a week and I might lose my toenail, just in time for summer.

    I so agree about keeping toenails short. Last yr. about this time my foot was run over and I lost my big toenail. It was gross alright but exercising would not go well with long toenails.

    Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your toe. Hopefully you dont loose it. What a great share though.

    So true on this one...haven't needed a podiatrist yet but I do know that walking/running is very uncomfortable when my toenails get too long.
