I think it's like any new activity. New muscle usage causes soreness, and after a while you don't get sore anymore. Make sure your body is supported and you're not hunched over or tense. Take frequent breaks and stretch your fingers. I knit English style and can go for hours without getting sore, but when I got back into knitting after years away, my hands ached at night.
