Athlete Toenails


Recommended Posts

Whilst we look after the majority of our body, it seems sometime teeth and lots of times - toes and toenails suffer. My toenails would look great in the set of the Hobbit or Dumb and Dumber. I can’t get them to be healthy looking, let alone healthy.

So does anyone else have this problem ? More importantly, does anyone have solutions ? Ta

regular visits to a reputable nail salon.  as a bonus they can paint them to match your tri suit.

Yep, teeth I got fixed easy enough, toenails - wear socks.  Got 2 toes with no nails, 1 little toenail that breaks off if it gets bigger than 1 square cm and another that I've lost in one run or another each year for the last decade at least

Use to rank IM efforts by the number of toenails falling off in the weeks after.

IM Port - 0

IM Cairns - 1 off, 1 black

IM Kona - 0

 

Race that I put in the biggest effort, best result,  best time - Cairns

Never lost a toenail due to rub etc in a race or in training. I always keep them short, and rounded at the edges so they don't rub on shoes or the next toe. I have lost one. Ripped it clean off, but that was due to kicking a rock during a swim section in shallow water. Mongrel to ride & run after it, so i know the pain you go through.
