if you're training for a 5k run , you might wanna rethink skipping leg day until your race is over

you don't wanna overtrain now do you ??

stretch good after every workout and it will keep muscle soreness to a minimum. most of the soreness people get is from lactic acid and other stuff just sitting in the muscles because it never got a chance to get out. when you stretch, it keeps the blood running through the muscle and helps eliminate the wastes in them. the soreness from actual muscle tissue damage is quite unnoticable, unless you try to use those muscles again. running will not make your muscles sore from muscle damage. just stretch good afterwards.

I do strech before and after and on off days. I got sore from lifting. I normally get over being sore in a few days but i dont want to take a chance.

after a leg workout try riding an exercise bike for 5-10min.

Static stretching. Even dynamic stretching. Also go do some light weight squats and led extensions to get the blood going. That will flush out some of the lactic acid.
