THis is weird! I've had company and things going on, so I've neglected my walkies for 3 days and this morning I can barely move my hips hurt so much ??? When i walked it out for a while, i felt totally fine. Is this normal??? if you DON'T walk for a few days it hurts????

If you're new to exercise, sometimes the worst pain is 2 or 3 days after, but it doesn't sound like it's new exercise.

Not getting your exercise doesn't feel great, but I really don't think it would cause you pain like that.

I think you must have done something you're unaccustomed to and don't realize it. Like maybe climbing up and down chair getting decorations down, squatting to do deep cleaning, stuff like that.

I have bad knees from hauling around 165 lbs of extra weight for so many years. On the rare times when I don't get my walking in, the following day I ALWAYS pay for it with ache-ier than usual knees. For me it really is use it or lose it. The more active I am, the better I feel.

I tend to be move it or lose it too. if I don't do the exercise for a day or two, I can get stiff and sore, esp in the wet, cold winter.

stretching even if I don't exercise can help.

i have the same feeling, but in my knees. I'm chalking it up to walking in heels all week and being WAY more sedentary than usual.

Trazey, I am like the Tin Man and exercise is my oil! If I don't exercise I seize up, literally. There were times in the past that I could not walk down the stairs in the morning without stepping down one at a time and holding onto the railing for dear life--and I was in my 30s! I think that I have some very mild arthritis. I love how exercise makes me feel. Some people say that I'm addicted. I would say that I'm dedicated.

^^^ Yes, yes, and more YES! ^^^

It always amazes me just how quickly things turn badly. One, with no exaggeration, just ONE "off" day and I'm an ache-y, creaky-y mess.

I do yoga and my back and hips are definitely not happy with me when I slack. I get stiff and knotty. But the joint stiffness, to me, is very different from muscle soreness after an intense or unaccustomed workout. I thought the OP was describing the latter, but I don't suppose she really said enough to tell.

I'm thinking that's exactly what it is, "use it or lose it" i've noticed it before but never really put it together -- if I do some walking during the day, even stopping at the mall and doing a few laps (intentionally LOL not strolling to shop) I feel awesome, days I don't my hips kind of feel sore, and after 3 days of nada, the hips were major OUCH! once i walked again I feel super duper! I'm not stopping walking ever!!!!
