OK, however...: Congratulations! This is not unusual as you are using muscles more and in new ways. But because of the soreness you may benefit by backing off a bit, perhaps doing this every other day until the pain lessens. It's possible whey protein powder may help but look for one from grass-fed cows processed with low heat such as Whey Cool. Homeopathic Arnica, both sublingual and topically, may also help.
