You will have used your body in way that it’s unaccustomed to, creating new neural pathways. A little muscle soreness is normal, and will dissolve quickly with good hydration, adequate nutrition and if not, a warm epsom salt bath. Don’t have unrealistic expectations about your progress - slow and steady is the way forward. The key is consistent and regular practice, you’ll be surprised at how easily your body will adapt to new information.
