Default question about 30DS - push through pain?

hi guys

I know theres other threads on 30DS but have a specific question & didn't want it to get missed!

today I just completed L1D4 & today when doing it I had quite specific leg muscle pain in certain parts of the dvd (ie side lunges). Day 2 & 3 I was quite sore all over which I expected and pushed through but today that soreness was mostly gone but just now pain only when doing some of it.

My question is do i keep going tomorrow or take a day or 2 to rest? I don't want to stop all together but I don't want to injure myself either! Also, does the pain indicate I'm doing it wrong?

Lastly also wanted to know if people were doing other exercise as well as the 30DS?

I stopped (for the time being.) I have a pulled groin muscle and do not want to risk a torn groin muscle. If you are in pain, stop. that's your body's way of warning you. Also, Jillian herself, on her PODcast, recommends 2 days on, 1 day of cardio, 2 days on, 1 day of cardio, RELAX. She means 30 workout days, but her marketing team thought it would sell better just calling it 30 days.

(and I add in crunches EVERY day)

Stage 1: Mini Goal 1: 265 pounds - complete 1/12/13; Mini Goal 2: 250 pounds - complete 4/17/13; Mini Goal 3: 225 pounds - completed 10/21/13
Stage 2: Moderate Obesity BMI - completed 11/26/13; ONDERLAND; Overweight BMI
Stage 3: work in progress

One for every 10 pounds lost:

You can exercise through overall muscle soreness (i.e. workout soreness) - it will often go away during the workout. But pay attention to muscle pulls and joint pain.
