Is this what it feels like to be unfit?

My recovery time for my pulse rate is unusually long, but I haven't exercise since mid last year. Am I just unfit or what?

I've been bad. I haven't been to the gym or done any significant exercise for over a year. I've gained heaps of weight and become a general all-round slob.
So I got fed up with myself a couple of weeks ago and got back into my old routine. Problem is my spin classes are now quite tiring, which is a new experience. It takes ages for my pulse rate to return to normal, like an hour or more. I've always been a fairly fit person and had a really quick recovery time for my heart rate so this is rather unusual.
Is this just a case of "duh, this is what it feels like to be unfit" or should I be worried?
