Kicks and Niggles

This taper thing is driving me crazy.  I didn't have any injuries of consequence during the training...only the expected muscle soreness. But now during the taper, I feel this twinge in my butt that reminds me of a problem I had before my 1st marathon back in 1980.  I actually had trouble standing and walking last night without pain!  Is it psychological or certainly feels real! 

But luckily, after a full night's sleep and a morning hike, all seems to be improving.  I'll try a bit longer run tomorrow approximately the same time as the scheduled race start and with my intended race gear.

5 miles this AM and skipped the traditional evening hike after the lower back flared again after dinner.
