Need advice on slight knee pain.

I have been running again for about 4 weeks now after taking a year off. I am following a 10K training plan and have been running M, W, F, Sat. with off days in between. Yesterday after my run the outside (right), lower portion of my right knee was sore. This is to the right and from the center to just under the knee cap. I didn't notice it while running, only after. Today the pain seems to be gone. Since I am planned for a 4 mile run tomorrow and 5 on saturday, should I be concerned?

    Any pain (as opposed to soreness) should be of at least some concern. If the pain is on the lateral side of the knee (away from the other leg), it could be Illiotbial Band Syndrome (ITB). This can usually be treated with stretching, foam roller exercises, etc.
