I'm so sorry I didn't see this post sooner! I've been dealing with similar issues. Your muscles can experience delayed soreness--my physical therapist says as much as two days later! Ice the area, and take your choice of pain pill--I take aspirin, but tylenol or ibuprofen might be more effective. Listen to your body. If you feel you can do it, move around after you ice it.
Next time, make sure to stretch. You can stretch before you work out, or when you start to feel the pain. That should help.
I dream of pants that fit me at my waist *and* my hips in an affordable price range.
Hard to say not knowing if something more is happening with you. But, if you simply have muscle fatigue and soreness..don't wait too long, just do some easier exertion for less time until you build up. I began running on my treadmill..after walking very fast for many months consistently. At first I was sore, I'd run 1 minute and walk fast 1 min. alternating. Now, I can do 2min. running and 2min walking..without a problem, for a total of 30 to 45 min. I want to one day just RUN..and I will. Keep it up, you'll be amazed how quickly you will condition yourself to more exercise..good luck Kiddo!!!

Ouch! I would say to definately take a day of rest. It sounds great that you did all that you did, but you don't want to over do it and then feel defeated and give up.
You should definately pride yourself on your motivation. WTG!

When you finish a workout, you don't simply feel better, you feel better about yourself!
Don't lose sleep over things you cannot change! Wash away guilt — it's not worth it! Strive for balance of health, fitness, nutrition, and happiness.
I was feeling so good about tackling those 5 flights of stairs yesterday(elevator out of order-NOT-a personal choice)I took my girls and went walking. Not far just to MIL just down the road. It was so hot, my legs and ankles started killing me halfway there and I was like okay thier a little sore from yesterday. After wishing MIL Happy Birthday and heading home. I made supper. I CAN'T STAND NOW. plus My back hurts so bad I can't bend over. Any recommendations on what to do. I was going to try to go walking tomorrow morning when it was cooler. Do I REALLY have to wait?
The day may not promise to be sunny, but that doesn't mean your outlook has to be gloomy too.
