There is a fine line with the thing I'm going to say here, please know this.  First, I want to say that its import to be smart while you are training.  It doesn't matter if it's training for the Games or just training for basic fitness.  Training smart means doing what you need to to keep yourself in the game.  I see so many people doing what they think the "champs" are doing out there.  They put in hours of "stuff" but never really do the basic stuff to perfection or the needed workouts as hard as they possibly can.  But they don't listen to the one thing that will carry them into the training, their body.  It's not a matter of beating the hell out of yourself.  Sometimes, it's ok to take an easy day.  Sometimes if you feel something tweak, it's ok to stop.  Sometimes if you aren't mentally in it, its ok to just go through the motions.  Now me saying this doesn't mean to not push hard or to use discomfort as reasons to stop, slow down or not try (this is the fine line part).  The listening-to-your-body is a way to preserve it so that you are able to go the long haul and get the most from your body.  So then how do you do this?  Is any discomfort a reason to stop?  Well its all a matter of what you want.  If you want to be able to compete at the highest level, then you need to be ready and used to enduring a high level of pain and discomfort.  If you are looking for fitness, then you still want to be able to work in discomfort but it's not about seeing how much discomfort you can take.  It's just maxing out the discomfort in the confines of the basic workout.  Then under discomfort, there is the difference between injury and "owie".  An injury means that you physically "broke" something in your body and it needs to be managed or rested.  An "owie" is something that hurts, is sore, is a little used, is tight, etc.  These are pains that you can, in most circumstances, and should, push through.  Once you assess the situation, make the correct move so that you are able to continue the training, either today, or days following.  Remember the journey in training is a marathon not a sprint:)
