I rolled my ankle 12 weeks ago and although it’s not painful at all to run, it hurts to stretch, am I ok to start marathon training?

If you are able to run pain free then you are probably ok to continue to run, however marathon training is obviously very demanding in terms of both volume and intensity so it would be advisable to get your ankle checked out by a qualified physio before you really start to ramp up your training.

I get a stitch on my right side at the bottom of my rib cage, every run that I do. It sometimes moves over to my left but not very often. Is there anything that you can suggest? I've tried putting my hands in the air, squeezing my water bottle and I stop to stretch but it always comes back. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
