<chuckle!> Your question makes me think of my granddaughter who is
continuing to learn the violin, but sometimes she resists her practice

"I just want to play, Mom, not practice."

The answer to your question is that I never feel pain of any sort,
even when I'm tired. My facial muscles just turn flabby.
I do, in fact, practice for 15-20 minutes, then read some messages
on the Internet, and then return to my music stand.
Obviously enough, each time that I start up again, I am not at the
same strength as during my first 15-minute session. This is what
started me to wonder about recuperation periods and the effect (if any)
of pushing oneself just a little bit farther.
