I agree. You will feel less sore after you strength train, even if you go lighter.

If it is a ST day, you should go do your ST. You can do exercises that do not involve the sore body parts, e.g. you can do upper body ST if you are sore in your legs. Or you can still do your regular ST workout involving your legs, but if you find that your legs bother you, you can do it lighter. This helps with keeping the ST schedule at least.
I agree with Jenstress, as long as your pain isn't acute, you should probably be okay to continue. Maybe an extra-long warm-up and cool-down/stretch to assist your muscles, but if it's just some residual soreness, go right ahead and work it today!
I added in a more intense lower body strength training routine on Tuesday, and had planned to do it again today (two days in between). I have been decently sore the last two days, and today I just feel a little sore in my quads. Is it ok do this workout today or should I wait til that soreness is gone?
