3 more days to go

October 3, 2007

Walk day is fast approaching. I went for a pedicure after work today. Toe nail maintenance is very important for long distance walking. I learned that a problem faced by many walkers is “black toe nail”. The foot slides forward in the shoe, banging the toes against the top, front, and sides with each step. The feet swell during the walk and get compressed by the socks and shoes. That pressure and impact can damage the toenail beds, or create a blister under the toenail itself. When this happens, the extra blood and fluid cause the toenail to separate from the toenail bed. The result being the blood coloring the toenail black.

I checked the weather for the weekend. The forecast is for temperatures in the mid 80’s, a little warm for walking. Hopefully the humidity will not be too high.
