Its the "OMFG I CAN'T MOVE" pain in my back that is fairly common (i've been told) when you first start skating that I need to work out.

If my back didn't seize - I'd happily skate through the cardio issues, through the cramps in my shin, through the numb feet... but my back seizes and I need to find a way to prevent that.
Try skating in the other direction for a while. I find my back seizes up after a while of skating left. Also stretching out your lower back before and after can really help a lot.
Everything will be ok in the end. If it's not ok it's not the end.
