just started a new exercise regime after a year of NO exercise. Am v committed to this plan is 3 mornings a week classes (military fitness). First class was Monday and I am due to go again this morning but am in agony & still can't walk properly as muscles so sore.
Will it all loosen up or will I damage myself if I try again today? next class is fri.
I'm not a qualifies trainer but having been through the same agonies before, my advice would be to attend but warn your instructor as you may need to warm up for longer. They may also give you some extra cool down stretches to do. But bear in mind I'm of the 'no pain, no gain' generation
Go! Forming the habit of exercise is as important at this stage as what you actually do in the classes. And the movement will help your muscles. Sounds like you just didn't stretch enough at the end of the last class - take a few minutes by yourself to do additional stretches from now on.
Well done EDna - if I had seen your post in time I would have said the same as all the others. Once get going your muscles feel better. Unless you have properly hurt yourself (pulled a muscle etc) then you are always better keeping going.
