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.

Hi Sara, Everything that Junkymonkey has said above is correct. The most important though is number 1 - fewer calories in than out. The rest will come with time as you settle into it. Best of luck.
