I haven't really left the house much since the start of the 3rd lockdown, I'd probably go for a walk no more than twice a week and I'd usually be aching so much after. I walk between 4 to 8 miles it varies.

I also hadn't had sex for 7 weeks until yesterday and I'm aching after this too haha. I wasn't like this before, I mean sure I'd probably ache after a long walk but not after sex lol.

If I walk more often will I not ache so much? should I do anything else?

I'd say gradually build up your walks again, starting off with slower and shorter walks because you don't want to go from doing little exercise to doing loads in one go. Also, do stretches before you leave and once you return. Hope that helps

Your muscles are 100% not used to It, so I recommend doing stretches, massaging your calf’s and thighs, and possible getting a muscle mower (kinda a foam roller thing that loosens your tendons and muscles.

Make sure you are wearing a decent pair of shoes/trainers for walking. Vary your route; if you don't, the camber will always be working the same set of muscles.

Thank you both for the suggestions, I really need to get myself healthier.
