I did an awesome full body workout on Tues. Weds woke up sore, did 40 mins HIIT, no weights. Today I got up and did a hill walk, but I am still really, really sore (I have been sick of late so not lifting weights much, back into it now).
Is it ok to go to the gym when still sore, or should you wait another day?

Do you go to the gym when you are sore?"You have to make a decision what you want to be in life. If you want to be something special then you have to sacrifice a lot. I get the most satisfaction out of things not everybody experiences . . ." Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Depends on which muscle is sore. Working out a sore muscle group isn't good. That's an indication that the muscle still didn't recover yet.
So instead of doing a full body workout, split your muscle groups on 3-5 days and rest 2. Give your body sometime to recover.
It doesn't matter if you're doing cardio though, unless you did HIIT then the next day did leg workout. Fatiguin a muscle that is already fatigue is not the way to go.أشهد أن لا إله إلاَّ الله و أشهد أن محمد رسول الله
