Recently, I've been experiencing some knee pain.

It came as a result of an intense session of pistols, explosive lunges, and a 2 hour game of ultimate frisbee.

Yesterday morning, I could walk fine. But going up and down stairs was difficult and I had to concentrate pretty hard to keep from falling over.

This morning, my knee seems fine, but walking up and down stairs still has a certain soreness associated with it.

How long should I rest before I resume pistols and explosive lunges? How long before I can do HIIT again?

Well, I would rest until there is no discomfort.

Soreness can be worked through but you know the difference between this overused state you are in and now regular soreness.

When introducing a new program it is best to take it slowly but if you have jumped in too fast or just had an unusually hard day, it can take as much as 5 days.

By "no discomfort," do you mean absolutely no pain at all? Or no pain during running?

My knee has improved a lot and I can walk and jog without feeling much of anything. But, if I get in a squat position, I can still it being sore. In addition, if I apply pressure with my fingertips around certain areas of the knee, I can feel soreness.

Does this mean more rest or can I resume HIIT again?
