Best to Rest
Here is an example of how part of my body was not quite 100% so I modified my run to let it regenerate, and it’s been completely fine ever since!
And j ust yesterday an athlete I coach said her calf was a little sore, probably from the multi-leg relay she recently did. I told her to give it a few days of rest and she was concerned she would lose too much fitness. However, I suggested that it is always best to rest for a couple days and hopefully let something regenerate rather than push it in fear of losing fitness and risk becoming severely injured.
