Most of us had experienced "pain" before while playing sports or exercising. Pain is a signal that our body "tell" us that we should slow down or stop whatever we are doing. But not all kinds of pain are the same. There are the good pains and the bad ones.
Let me further elaborate. Some of the good pains are the muscle aches and "burning" or "numbing" sensation we feel in our muscles due to the lactic acid accumulation etc. Bad pains are the sharp or nagging pains in our muscles and joints, chest pains, headaches, nauseousness and etc. Good pains are often inevitable for the serious athletes and fitness enthusiasts. However, bad pains should be avoided at all times. For example, a sharp pain in the muscle or joint may be a sign of an existing or potential injury. Should you continue in the activity, the injury may occur or worsen. It is not worth the risks to bear with the pain and continue with the activity.
With more training experiences, you should be better able to figure out the good and bad pains and strike a balance between pushing your limits and minimizing the risks of injuries etc.
