I did a lot of jumping jacks and now my thighs hurt so bad it's hard to walk. What is going on with my thighs?

Your muscles are experiencing delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) which is the pain and stiffness in your thights.   You can experience this soreness anywhere from 24 to 72 hours after your workout.  

If you continue to do jumping jacks, your muscle will rapidly adapt to this in attempt to prevent musclse damage.  This will prevent further soreness.
