Last weekend (not this past weekend), we helped some people we know move. Oh man! What a work-out!! Haha. It was really hot, which also didn't help. It was much better moving stuff in the evening, than in the afternoon. I tried to help as much as I could, but I was a bit disappointed to be faced with how out of shape I am compared to when I was helping people move in university. But it does motivate me to keep exercising to improve my fitness level.
I knew that I would be sore afterward. The next day I was really sore, which made me worried for the dreaded second day after. I tried to stretch out the muscles and I do think it helped. The second day I woke up in the middle of the night and had to go to the bathroom - oy! I could barely move! Haha. But by the morning I was able to move a bit more.
I tried to kind of keep walking around through the day (slowly) and I think it helped. It didn't take too long for the soreness to subside.
