I might even take the hit on a red mark this week in an effort to 'save myself' for bench on Saturday/tomorrow.
No way, go in and just get the reps.
Even if you can't do the 1RM reps justice, just getting them is fine. Instead of your old 1RM being, well, a 1RM, think of how fun it will be to say "This is my old 1RM, but it's been a hell week, I'll just go do my goal 1 rep and go home and go hard next time." Just the idea of your 1RM becoming an easy single whenever you want it should be pretty awesome. I feel that way with 300 now - it was my limit, and I couldn't do a double if you paid me, and now a double isn't even half of a set for me. :)
I'm hoping things will calm down a little after a few weeks giving me some good training time before getting to my old PR's. Despite the schedule, I'm consistently hitting minimum reps or more though. My squat feels good. It's worth it just for the squat progress.
That's how I feel about it. Even if only one thing goes up, you're improving the one important to you while holding steady on the others. Plus you're getting in solid rep work, which can only help when you focus on the other exercises more.
