I tried kickboxing Wednesday! A THS senior is an instructor at her parents' gym and is offering a once-a-week staff class to raise money for an upcoming trip to Italy.
I decided to give it a try, and despite my near-complete lack of coordination, I managed to get a great workout.
But I woke Thursday feeling great - and sad because I apparently didn't get the awesome workout I thought I had. But by evening, I was HURTING!
Delayed onset muscle soreness "is the pain and stiffness felt in muscles several hours to days after unaccustomed or strenuous exercise." (source) It doesn't come right away but a day or two after the exercise.
OUCHY! Everything hurts - legs, butt, arms, back!
I haven't experienced the dreaded DOMS in a while. New activities will get ya every time :)
