After not running for a while, I ran 6 miles a day for 5 days. I am 21 and in good shape but my arch has hurt for about a week. How long to recover?

In brief: Try to even it out

It could take several more days of rest.
It is always better to have a steady exercise program than to stop and then try to resume at the level you were prior to stopping. Better to resume at a lower level of intensity and build up gradually than injure yourself and add to the deconditioning time by being injured. No one thinks it can happen to them until it does.
