I ride 48x16, as well. You will get stronger at stopping the more you ride. I was sore on the inside of my quads for a few days when I first started riding fixed. It will just take some time, but you will build those stopping muscles plenty soon.

Additionally, 48x16 is not an ideal gear for braking. I may drop to a lower gear, personally.
