Secrets of Success

Keep Toenails Short



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. - by GINA180847

  • Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your toe. Hopefully you dont loose it. What a great share though. - by WANNABELESS1
  • 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. - by MSDELISLE
