In brief: Muscle/tendon
This is accumulated Lactic Acid and inflammation the best course of action is increased water; if you can get enhanced pH water that is microclustered from a health food store even better. Topical antiinflammatories such as topical recovazon gel is highly effective in reducing pain and inflammation.

In brief: Tendinitis
If the pain is directly above your knee cap, it may be tendinitis of the quadricep tendon.
Stretching, bracing, and backing down on the speed running may help.
