Black Toenail: Finally Healed

Black Toenail: Before and After

I can tell you the exact day I got black toenail. It was December 20th, 2006. Even though my nails are still a little damaged from that day, I can tell you that they are finally healed. Yes, it took TEN months for my nails to grow back. I spent all summer with ugly feet because I didn’t SLOWLY increase my mileage.

I went from doing one or two miles a day up to doing five and ten miles a day. I figured that since my muscles could handle it, there was no problem, right? Wrong. The weakest link was my toenails and I paid for it for ten months. Fortunately, it didn’t hurt more than a few weeks of that time and when they grew back, they look just like they did before.

Don’t be stupid like me. Take care of yourself. Slowly increase your mileage to protect your muscles, your joints AND your toenails.

I’m just so glad to have my normal feet back! I feel like celebrating!

    I’m sorry this happened to you. I bruise my nails all the time playing tennis and they usually fall off. You can go to the nail salon and they can put acrylic on it and cover the bruise or even make a new nail if it falls off.

    Congrats! They look great! I’m sure you must be relieved. Thanks for the warning. I definately have to watch out that I don’t increase my mileage too quickly. My body/muscles are feeling great, handling about or a little over 2 miles at a time. Great advice that I will definately heed. 🙂
