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 run about one and half miles and I'm training for a marathon and I'm starting to feel a pull like some tendon going into my groin is causing me a burning pain and I have to stop by 4.5 miles. What do you suggest?
