Surrey PhilFeeling heavy-legged and tired is quite common with tapering, so don't worry. The same can apply to the aching. The tiredness is down to there being more glycogen in the muscles. Keep an eye on any pains and maybe treat yourself to a sports massage now the hard work and long runs are behind you.
