Keep listening to your body, just like you are. I drink water w acv before and during my workout. It helps me keep my energy up and takes the edge off of soreness the next day so that I can workout again.

Definitely slow down and don't push yourself quite so hard. I would take a rest day or two to recover if walking is sore.

Thanks everyone!
It was pretty painful the day after, and walking was such a task!

the only thing that relieved it was stretching.
But it did get better by Wednesday.

I will definitely down the intensity for sure next time!! Thank you for all your advice and help! It's very much appreciated!

Moderation in all things. You gotta sneak up on it.

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) is a common response of your muscles doing something they are unfamiliar with. And 3-4 days of soreness would not be uncommon.

Assuming it is a dull pain (rather than a sharp pain that may indicate an injury), the best approach is an "active recovery". Light cardio (eg. walking) is a positive, as the increased blood flow to the muscles can help the recovery process.

The next couple of times you try Zumba, dial back the intensity a little, until your muscles get used to the demands of that activity.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Here's an article you might find helpful:

As long as it doesn't seem like pain, you probably just overdid it a little, so keep that in mind for next time.

For example, CRAZY sore, do you still work out the next day? Or do you wait to recover?

I did Zumba for the first time in awhile on Sunday, and my calves were killing me. I did calf stretches as often as possible, but they didn't start feeling better until today.

So, I didn't work out Monday and Tuesday because I hurt so much.

Any suggestions? Or maybe I did something wrong that I should take care to do next time?

All advice is appreciated!!
