Ugh!!! Well my middle toe on BOTH feet were hurting a bit after getting the new running shoes, but after doing that 18 miler last weekend, I think I finally did them in.
Now the middle toenails on both feet are a deep shade of red and getting darker (good bye nail). I did some research on line and it had horrible stories of popping the blisters under the nail and such. As you can tell this is my first experience.
It appears that my new Asics (Kayano 13) have a pointier toe than the old Brooks Addictions I have had forever. So this past week I have brought out the old Brooks for running and need to get back to the store to get a different pair of running shoes, this time with more room in the toe box.
My right middle toe does not hurt so much but the left one is still tender. I am able to tie the Brooks with my foot at the back on the heel to relieve any pressure on the toe. Fortunately, my long run tomorrow is only 10 miles.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
