Started C25K on Tuesday,did it a couple of years ago and I remember it working it terms of fitness,losing weight,toning up etc.Completed day 1 and felt really good.
Woke up yesterday all smug at the fact that my unfit wine and crisp loving body wasn't aching in the slightest,obviously fitter than I thought eh? Halo

Erm no.Woke up aching to fuck today like I'd run a marathon in the night! What is this magical bullshit?

What's worse is that doing it again will help. It's definitely witchcraft, because that makes no logical sense - how can putting yourself through it more than once be a good thing?

I know wtf! I'm doing it again later

Yeah the second day is usually worse than the first if you push your body more than it's used to.

PenCreed is right, running again will help fix it - that's the bit that makes absolutely no sense to me.

DOMS on the second day after exercising is a sure sign you've pushed your body REALLY hard. Ouch.

Yep..... DOMS!
DAY 2.

The DOMS are broken muscles rebuilding themselves into glorious, beautiful, perfection. Yes, it is magic.
