Well how do you normally recover from an average day in the gym? If you generally feel a little bit tired and sore a couple days after a session then maybe take a little extra time before an event. For me, aside from rare cases and heavy leg days, I usually feel 90-100% after a day off.
Just keep in mind the travel aspect of it too. If you know you're going to be spending a long time walking around airports and not eating, hydrating, and resting, maybe take an extra day off.
I've played paintball the day after lifting fairly heavy and haven't had any ill effects, if that gives you some confidence. Normally after a good stretch and a couple laps around the field you're loose enough and once the adrenaline factors in you should be good enough to ride out the day.
