I dont think an added jog would help depending on the cause. A jog that is of an intensity to kick in the production of lactic acid sure wouldnt help. Increase oxygen demands on the cells defeats the purpose. With the soak your under low demand for Oxygen with increased blood flow to cleanse while delivering the oxygen for healing. The Jog would divert oxygen for fuel burning and production. Once soreness and stiffness has set in about all you can do is warm up and work through it if the root cause is lactic acid build up. IF its due to mucle fiber damage from the work out, rest is the cure. That is how strength is built. Work beyond capacity causing minor injury and rest for the rebuild which increases strength in response. Its why you have a target rotation and rest days built into training schedules.
