I noticed during the a 5k race that I did over the past weekend and my run that I got in this morning a new tension. The middle of my back begins to get really tight while running beyond 3 miles, Anybody know any reason of why that would happen? I personally thought maybe I felt tension because my back muscles were in action but I've never felt my back muscles(lats, and traps, and stuff) have tension unless I was lifting weights. If anyone has any answers or thesis on what this could be please reply. Also a side note I am overweight and I have just accomplished hitting the 3 mile mark recently I've worked my way up to this.
