That's a difficult one. You'll never know until you try it out. But it's important that you take it very slowly in your comeback to running. I'm not sure why you feel you've not seen any progress, whether your injury is still present? If it is, then running is a bad idea anyway. So that's not clear. But if you can run, and decide to, then it's important to take it slow. The collapsed arch might be a contributing factor, but the CAUSE of the injury is your training. In other words, you can control the cause, by training at a level that you can manage. Don't go too long or too fast too soon, and then you'll find that you actually develop the necessary strength by running.
That's a fine balance, one that is very difficult to sort out. But you have to constantly remind yourself to hold yourself back and avoid overdoing it.
