I would roll them out after training. Mike said he does this and is fine. If you are feeling spicy in the IT band area just go lighter and really de-emphasize eccentric moves. Ice the heck out of that area also:

Get a few Styrofoam cups and fill them 3/4 full with water and then freeze them. Take one, peel the Styrofoam down to about an inch below the ice and use this to ice the affected areas for 5-7 min 3-5 times per day (the remaining cup will protect your fingers from the cold, nice bonus). It will hurt! Ice it to numbness . If you can do this for a few days you will cut weeks off the rehab time.

This is a cut and paste I use on cryotherapy. Just ice after training and rolling. You should be good to go!
