I have picked up running and have been running 27 - 30 miles per week which will pick up. I have found that I have IT band rubbing past 6 miles. I do not know how to avoid this. Any suggestions?

I disagree as well. Stay active as much as you can, as long as you're not in actual pain.
A few things I find that really help are foam/rumble rolling, stretching, and epsom salt baths are amazing for sore muscles :) Hope this helps!

As a coach, I disagree with the previous comment. If you are sore, but not hurting, I would still work out, although your workout should be slightly easier than the previous day. Part of the soreness is from building muscle, but part of it is due to lactic acid build up in your body. The absolute best way to get rid of that is through more exercise.
Some other tips: 1) Make sure to stretch after a workout. That will also help get rid of the lactic acid and help prevent soreness the next day.
2) Ice baths (or just ice packs). 20 minutes of icing after a hard workout will help reduce inflammation, and thus soreness.

No. Not if you're still sore. Your muscles need opportunity to heal and repair, this is when muscle is grown. You could do an upper body workout instead. Lay off any heavy cardio.

I did a lower body ST session on Friday and felt super sore yesterday and today. I went hiking today and walked a lot yesterday thinking that it would help but it doesn't seem to work.
Should I do the same work out tomorrow if I am still sore ( but not in pain)?
