This past weekend i tried

400m run
thrusters with 25lb dumbells
400 run

didn't get much farther than the first set before my legs gave out.

I've had lowerback soreness which i expected but also my tailbone really hurts.

Any ideas? Is this normal ?

You may have slightly pulled the supporting muscles in the lower back/ upper Glute region. Put some ice on it for a while in case of swelling, otherwise use heat for a while to keep blood flow to the area and slowly work through the soreness with low range/ low weight exercises to test it. From there you should be fine after a while. Try doing a few no weight lunges also to test the range of motion in that area to see how it responds. The main thing is to give your body a little rest also. This is the type of stuff I do when I injure my hynee also.:blush: But remember, only you know how far to push yourself through your therapy. Overall it is not an uncommon injury.

I'd recommend looking at this thread:

More specifically, look at the link posted by Christian regarding trigger points. Having bought a good book on the subject after reading a number of his posts, I've started using trigger point massage and found it works great.

There are a lot more posts and a wealth of info on the topic too, so I'd suggest going through them.
