It's scary, isn't it!
You were most likely in your dream sleep (REM sleep) and woke up. In REM sleep your muscles are basically paralysed (sounds scary, but if they weren't we all would be kicking our legs and waving our arms while acting out our dreams!)
I've had this happen before, and I'm sure many others on this forum will report it happening too.
If it does happen on a regular basis though, I'd definitely speak to your sleep physician.
