I've been exercising for 3 months (as opposed to being a couch potato for the past 38 years!). On average, I do 45 to 60mn on the treadmill, 4 times/week. I started walking. Then increased the incline. Now I do intervals (running/power walking). On a good day I can run 30 mns, but I aim for at least 20mns (if I'm tired).
What's changed recently is that I went back on paleo (with dairy) 1 week ago. I fell off the wagon 6/7 months ago, felt myself getting really "blah" on a very unhealthy SAD diet, and I'm very happy to be back on paleo.
I'm doing very low carb, 20 to 40g (I need to lose weight).
And here's my question: After Sunday night's run/walk I was sore, and today, 2 days later (I didn't exercise yesterday) I'm even more sore!!
I know it's probably because I'm VLC (right?). But I don't want to up the carbs, because I'm desperate to lose weight. My question is Does it get better? Does the soreness go away eventually as my body adapts to eating VLC and I keep exercising? And can I do something to get rid of the soreness or make it better without increasing carbs?
