When one has later or delayed soreness the next day it is because of some trauma to the muscle cells as you exceed their capacity. The good news is that if you do this just right, the muscle gets better at handling both situations... endurance/strength

Go see ur Family Doc: Is pain in joint or muscle? Any injury or trauma? Any break in skin? Redness? Red streaks? Boil or pocket of pus? Any repetitive motions? If no evidence of infection, consider RICE: rest, ice, compression & elevation. Also consider over-the-counter pain relievers if not allergic and no contraindications (reasons not to do so). If no better, then go see your Family Doc who may order xrays etc.
