I am assuming this is generalized muscle soreness, rather than specific pain.
Muscle soreness is a common response whenever you do something your muscles are unfamiliar with. If you stop every time you get some soreness, your muscles will never get used to it.
Moderate workouts can actually help, as the increased blood flow helps the recovery process. So keep working out, but definitely dial back the intensity for a week or two. If you work out regularly, your body adapts quite quickly to the new demands you make if it.
If it is the sharper pain that may indicate a muscle or tendon strain, then that is when you should take some time off from working out. (Although from your description, it doesn't sound like this is the case).
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.
