You can do this ChrisHC. One week down - actually two by now! Whoo hoo!!
Epsom salts are my friend. Walgreens store brand comes in several "flavors" including a lavender chamomile that will also help you relax and get a good night's sleep.
Whenever I overdo or do something new and work some muscles I didn't know I had, I take a long, hot soak in Epsom salts. When I'm feeling particularly beat up, I take a Tylenol first. I soak until the water gets cold - but that's cuz I love to bubble bath. I think the package recommends soaking for at least 15 minutes.

Well this is the end of week one, did all three days and then some. I am use to walking over 3.5 miles 3x a week and one mile the rest of the days. I was walking and running off and on for my whole route today. I found that today my knee on my right leg was hurting. I did not stop walking but I did stop running. After a while my knee stoped hurting so I tryed runing again. It starting hurting again so that was the end of runing for my day. I am not giving up I just will slow down a bit.
Are you doing any stretching exercises? Do you warm up and cool down after exercise? Are you new to exercise or have you been doing it awhile? I get the same thing but IMHO, I think it's just my age. ( the bottoms of my feet even hurt when I get out of bed in the morning...LOL)
Does anyone have trouble with being sore all Over even ankles? Seems like when I sit down after a few minutes when I get up I'm stiff & sore. After a little bit of moving around it goes away! I weight 186 & 59 yrs. old sure hope I can do this!
