I recently decided to start exercising again after years of not exercising at all. I'm 22, 5'2, and 210lbs. My goal is to loose 30lbs, mostly from my stomach, legs, and upper arms....so everywhere, hahaha.
In an attempt to get back into at least going for a walk every morning, I started doing just that. Around 7ish in the morning, before I have to do anything like work or classes, I go for a 30 minute walk/light jog, and then will walk a local fitness trail near my house, which involves steps and inclines and various other obstacles. I currently don't have the funds for a gym membership so this was the best I could do for at least the time being.
The first day I did this, the pain was bearable, I expected my body to freak out when I randomly just started exercising again. But during day 2 & 3, It was/is terrible. Both of my legs feel like they are constantly cramping and its painful to walk around or be on my feet - which is part of my profession as a hair stylist. My upper body doesn't feel too bad, and my feet are a little sore, but i attribute that to not having better sneakers - but my legs are in agony.
Do I just keep going? Will I get past all the pain eventually? Or do I need to take it a bit slower, and only exercise maybe once or twice a week as opposed to every morning? What can I do? >__<
