Sorry this is going to be wordy!
I went to a fitness class on Wednesday. It was a 30 minute class, we did all sorts of exercises - lunges, running on the spot, some yoga, pilates, etc. Never stopped moving, but you could go at your own pace, which I am glad for cause 1) I have a heart condition and 2) I haven't done a calss like that since, um, high school? lol
It was a great workout. I really liked it. It's just once a week, and I thought it was perfect to add to my daily walking/elliptical routine.
But OMG I was sore! And not, oh a little sore, the burn is worth it. Like, seriously sore. I could barely move. Advil and heating pad sore. And I am still sore today! I am much better today, Thursday and Friday were killer, but still! I went to the gym Thursday night to do the treadmill, thinking it might help, and it SO did not.
I know I was suppose to be sore, but it just seems like this is in excess. Everyone keeps telling me it will get a little better each time. But I can't be out of commision for 2-3 days each week!
Now I don't know what to do. Do I go again Wednesday? Do I try and do the same exercises every day? Any tips or ideas?
