Just to say hope everyone has managed there home work during the last week . I know that some of you may feel a little stiffness and soreness in the muscles and joints after exercise. It’s quite normal for Thai to happen irrespective of how fit you are when you are using muscles that perhaps haven’t been used used for a while.
It’s called Delayed onset Muscle Soreness (Doms for short)
To give you reassurance I have copied and pasted the following note from the NHS .
Have you ever felt sore after starting a new activity or pushing yourself harder than usual during a workout?

Muscle soreness that shows up 1 or 2 days after exercising can affect anyone, regardless of your fitness level.

But do not be put off. This type of muscle stiffness or achiness is normal, does not last long, and is actually a sign of your improving fitness.

It happens to Bridget and me when we do different exercises in the gym but soon goes

See you all Tuesday, take care
