My Knees Hurt

My Knees Hurt. My Knees Hurt. Did I mention that My Knees Hurt?

Ever since the fateful running WODS at the beginning of the month, and the 500,000 squats and lunges I've done every week, I'm beginning to think they will never feel right again. I am quite sure that there is no injury--the pain is very even, not acute or isolated to one place. Rather it feels like the places where my muscles attach to bone are being stretched. Really stretched. I expect that this is true because after a recovery day and when it is time to go back for a WOD I feel ready (even if they are not completely sore-free), and my squats and lunges get deeper and better with each workout. Once I'm home, though, My Knees Hurt. Oh, I already said that? Sorry, but they do. Could you pass me the ice packs please?

Today's WOD:

5 RM OHS (60#)

Then AMRAP in 8 minutes
3 bar muscle ups (scaled, 6 chest to bar pull-ups and 6 hand-release pushups)
6 power cleans (50#)
9 KB OHS (15# dumb-bell--these were HARD)
