Is this normal! I was so pleased with myself for having finally got off the sofa. Got the new trainers, had my gait assessed, all that stuff that everyone wisely recommends. Did it to the letter, was rather pink in the cheeks by the end but having got past the urge at 30secs to give up, I carried on and was quite pleased with myself. Perhaps with the grace of a plodding elephant but I did it. Is it usual to be sooooo stiff? I teach tai chi and do a bit of coastal rowing so wasn't quite this much stiffness. Will it get better?
