Brief Answer:
Buy knee caps.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The mild pain could be due to excessive stress put on the knees due to increase in workouts. it is best to buy knee caps to add an extra support to the knees and gradually increase the workout. Doing hot compress will also help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
