Pain in the back

Tom: I could not find Bruce. However, I am taking tommorow off. A timeline:
7:50 am- Wake up incredibly optimistic after a great 45 minute run the day before.
8:05 am- Lower back is a little sore, worried about recreating the sore back/hamstring problem of two weeks ago.
9:30 am- I start the massaging my back and my hamstring during class.
9:32 am- People start to stare wondering whether all the rubbing is due to me having some sort of fungal infection.
9:34 am- Fungal infection theory confirmed by one of my friends (no longer a friend)
2:15 pm- Get out of class and start talking to myself trying to decide whether my not too sore back merits a day off.
2:17 pm: People start to ask former friend whether his friend with the fungal infection suffers from some kind of mental disorder.
2:45 pm: I decide to take the day off.
2:47 pm: I leave to go for my run.
3:20 pm: Have a miserable run since too concerned about my back/ hamstring which seems to be alright.
4:00 pm: Still feel fine.
9:00 pm: Right side just generally tight stemming from back, wondering what is wrong with Tom McArdle.

How severe are these "pains" you get? Are they so bad that you simply cannot get back to running 100+ miles per week?
