how much rest ?
Are you tapering at the mo? I'd give it at least 3 days rest, more if necessary. Wait until it's comfortable before running again. No point creating an injury this close to the marathon when you should be easing down anyway.
I had a knee niggle in the last week before the Brighton Marathon yesterday. Was achy all week and I was taking pain relief the night before. In the run though it was totally fine. Not a second of pain from it so don't panic, tapering niggles are common but needn't be race threatening!
