Hey! The same thing happened to me. It's really important to heat your knee before working out and icing it after. A workout that really helped me was leg lifts. All you do is lay on your back, keep one leg straight and bend the other. Squeeze your butt, keep your butt tucked, squeeze your thigh muscle (I'm blanking on the name right now), and lift. Don't bend your knee. Once you start to feel yourself having to use your knee or hip to lift your leg, stop the exercise. Also, work on lunges and make sure you're using your butt to lift you up instead of your thigh muscle. When you use your thigh muscle, it often pulls at your knee causing stress, thus making your knee hurt more. Good luck!
