Most likely you did tear a muscle, lots of little tears. Don't worry, it's normal when you increase the intensity of an exercise, that is how you build muscle. Muscle fatigue is muscle tears, little tiny ones, the body rushes into to heal it and strenghten it, that is muscle increased, odd but true. So the bodybuilders we see with massive muscles, are what we call "ripped" derived from the ripped, torn muscles they worked to achieve that. Give yourself a day off unless you feel bad pain, if that's the case, seek medical attention. If you just feel a sensation like a mild bruise, get back on the machine and after a while of steady exercise, you won't feel it so much if at all.
