What can I do about pain in my foot, between the base of the toes and the arch of the foot. It occurred 4 days ago but prior to that I hadn't run for a week. The last run I did was 20 miles.

Sorry to hear you've developed an issue with your foot, it can be really frustrating especially when you are clearly progressing with your training up to 20 miles. Before you do anything else, I'd suggest you book an appointment with a physio.

They will be able to fully assess the problem and suggest the best course of rehabilitation. This will likely be a schedule of stretches and strengthening exercises to perform. It's impossible to assess an injury without a detailed examination by a physio, which is why it’s key you see one as soon as you can.

Although I train using SIS supplement in my drink, I regularly suffer from cramp. I've had negative blood test results for sodium and magnesium levels, do you have any further suggestions to prevent cramp?

I have been advised by a fellow runner that I should see a physio for issues I’ve been having with my Achilles. It’s quite expensive but do you think it will prove money well spent?
