You'll have to go by feel, again, with your coach's blessing.

On the other hand--and this is not advice--if you're a high school athlete with good genetics and you eat enough, you can do absolutely whatever the hell you want and recover from it. I did it. Even now, at 36, I can maintain a tremendous training volume (when you include matwork) and be ok. You probably can, too. Approach it conservatively and go from there.

Now get off these forums and enjoy your time in HS.
