I signed up for a 5k as a spur of the moment type of thing (not the best of ideas, I know...), and completed it without an issue.

However I am sore as sore can be, even after doing the Zumba warm-up and stretching they provided. My question is, is it better to give the body a few days to heal up and skip the typical exercise routine? Or should I keep at my weekly routine to work the soreness out?

Thanks!

I've been having what feels like never-ending muscle soreness, or really heaviness in my legs for awhile now, so am equally interested in the responses you get, kitty. While I do workout most days, it's not extreme & I mix it up. I keep thinking it will go away, but am wondering if its due to my exercise routine or something else.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Weight flucuation
It defies the laws of physics if you didn't put on additional clothing, food or water. Perhaps it's just that home scales aren't perfect... Or are you having water?

Calories and sodium
If you still want to have sodium, just raise your potassium intake. As you lose weight, your blood pressure will also reduce.

It may be worth trying to add/create your own recipe which gives you the option to then add to your food diary :)
