Sorry... didn't read properly...
With the leg, yes give it a rest but as Cougie says keep up your fitness, it's not the same but cycling on a static bike will at least keep the aerobic fitness going maybe give it a week and come back gently.
The half was just a normal long run, but just been done a bit harder/faster than normal.
The half itself is irrelevant the question is does the injury need a rest or not. Wait at least until you've gone to the running club and had a chat with whoever recommended your exercises if you trust in him.
You can always try using a treadmill for a week or two as that usually has lower impact it's not quite the same but it's way better than not running if it doesn't irritate the leg. But, a lot of injuries are juggling acts. It might be the trainers aren't suitable for you... Or your running to much. Possibly different trainers (not better, just different ones that suit your style) might make a difference. But, if you are at the ouch my legs hurt a lot stage, then you probably do need at least a weeks rest, the problem is if you do that and they are the same it then stretches out to a few weeks and then panic sets in
