Yesterday, I was out doing the rounds of point gathering. Dropped by to do the trivia questions and I get this one:
The morning after an intense workout, you start feeling quite sore. You notice that you feel this way up to 72 hours after your workout, but then you feel as good as new. Which type of muscle soreness are you experiencing?
* Long-Term Muscle Soreness
* Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness
* None of the Above
I'm somewhat sure it's Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness but just to be completely sure, I looked around and found: www.sparkpeople.com/reso
Now what makes this a little funny was I was suffering a really bad case of Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) at the time. I've got to remember to do some squats or something even on weeks that I don't do much anything else. Monday's class (after more than a week off for me) was squats, walking lunges across the room, pushups, walking lunges across the room, squats... We went back and forth. It all felt fine at the time not so much the next day and by Wednesday, I was walking with very stiff legs. Going up stairs was a little painful, coming back down was downright dangerous. Finally today I can move in an almost normal manner.
