That's a good pain. So, in order to sooth the effect uniformly to entire area, one need to stretch all the muscles that was impacted during exercise.

This is not very uncommon that people oversee stretching. Even it happens with elite athletes. It ends up in Injury. Our body takes more time to heel a injury compare to recover from exercise. So, it's not worth taking the risk.
