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.

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!
