Fat man trying to run
Sounds like okay starting pains to me. particularly "I am sore and achy, but it's fine and almost satisfying" sounds good. Where are you? See if you have a local parkrun, they can be a great motivator - 5K free, timed run every Saturday, all ages, all abilities, usually with some people doing walk/run (Goggle for "parkrun" all one word if you don't know what I'm talking about).
Also, I second the suggestion of trying to run on softer ground such as grass if you can.
