Re: When does I stop feeling sore due to regular excercise?
Once your body adapts to your new regimen the pain will lessen and eventually you won't recognize the sensations as pain, but instead with feeling good. In fact if you really get into it, you will feel more pain by NOT exercising than you ever did by exercising. You are only two weeks into it. Don't over do at first. Especially as a 50 year old. Your first goal should simply be to make sure everything is moving as it should. So stretch and ease into the exercise. Build on it from there. I would also recommend that you start building your core and work your way out from there.
The same with energy, right now your body is adapting to this new work load. Energy will return once your body begins to more efficiently allocate its resources to whatever it is tasked with. As with pain, eventually you will find yourself more tired and sluggish, when you don't exercise than when you do. In fact you will crave exercise to revitalize yourself.
I am not a big fan of the "no pain, no gain" outlook. You do not need to experience pain to benefit from exercise. Unless you are training for some athletic competition, such levels of training are not required. In fact, pushing to the point of pain continually will probably discourage you more than anything. Enjoy your new activity, the pain you are feeling now is simply the result of not having used these muscles before or as much. As I said that will lessen. Also the results you should seek should be about how you feel, rather than hitting some goal (ie lifting so much, or doing so many reps, running a mile in under so many minutes)
