Great resource for understanding your body - I saved it for future reference. I have had muscle cramps since I was a young girl (I was very athleic), later from being physically active, later from different medicines and recently from trying to be healthy. I have never heard to not point my toes! Amazing that I have treated for this and no one shared this gem of information.

Thanks! good information. I was going to stop my exercise program, because of the soreness every time. I got scared I shouldn't be working out so hard. I was thinking just go back to walking. Good motivation information. On to Curves now.

I think that overcoming muscle pain just takes time. When I exercise heavily, I am sometimes sore for two days.

Something that helps me feel amazing is to walk to and from the gym, instead of sitting down in the car post-workout. I only have 5-min drive but I noticed that even after cooling down and stretching, I felt tight getting out of the car back at home. I turned the 5-min drive into a 25-min walk and it really helps!

Great information. After reading the article I learn the name of the pain I sometimes get the day after I exercise "DOMS"= Delay Onset Muscle Soreness. I love when I learn something new:)

Glad you made the distinction between pain and soreness. Once a week I work to fatigue and feel sore the next day. I happen to enjoy the soreness because I know what it means. Now and then I can truly feel the burn too - but again - that's not usually more than once a week. Pain, otoh - uh uh. Nope. don't do pain.

I am about to do a 21 mile bike ride today and then teach a yoga class. This was an excellent artical to reinforce that I will be alright!

I've found ice baths to be incredibly helpful.

Oh, this is such a relief.

It's been a really long time since I've worked out, and I've been so sore and uncomfortable the last 24hrs. I was afraid that I might have pushed myself too far, but I'm sure that it's just from being inactive for so long. I'll start doing yoga to help with this soreness and stiffness.

Timely article, as I am tracking yesterday's work-out and lamenting the stiffness I am feeling today!!! Great resource! Thank you!
