Soreness is a common response when you do something your muscles are unfamiliar with.
I'd actually advocate continuing to work out, rather than stopping workouts, for a couple of reasons:
1. Increased blood flow to the muscles actually helps the recovery process.
2. Continuing to work out regularly will help your muscles get used to the new demands you are making of them, and will help you feel less sore in the future.
So keep working out, but definitely back off the intensity for a week or two.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
