I suffer from a sharp pain in one shoulder blade five miles into a run, what can I do to ease this?

That sounds both painful and frustrating. It may be that you have some tightness and potentially weakness in the muscles around the shoulder such as the rhomboids and trapezius. Although it can be expensive, the best course of action would be to see a qualified physiotherapist who should be able to make a diagnosis and provide a treatment and rehab plan for you. They can also assess your postural habits as this may be having some influence on those muscles. In the meantime you could try some gentle foam rolling of the shoulder area before running to help release some of the soft tissues.

I have recently pulled my groin whilst running, should I continue training or should I take some time of for it to heal. I have tried swimming instead but not sure how this will help me running longer distances.
