Geez....my first day was like 20 years ago. I don't remeber it much. Hah. However, I've seen numerous other friends go through their "first day" over the years. They are all usually quite sore the following day(s). As for goggles...talk to someone at a pro-shop. The need to fit right. High-end models come with little fans in them to help deal with moister.
