It's normal. Ice, other anti-inflammatory practices (e.g. limit pro-inflammatory foods).

Because you're presumably coming into it very strong, you may find that you need to back off the weight/volume a bit and come back more gradually. Sounds like you jumped in head first, so you're going to feel more beat up.
