I think I hurt myself doing hang cleans this week. It actually got worse with yesterday's WOD when I cleaned the bar to rack position for PP's. Feels like tennis elbow pain. It's mostly lateral epicondylar or maybe capitellar pain with weakend grip especially upon flexion at ~90 degrees with weight (e.g. glass of water). Will follow advice in here.
This is classic pain which is caused by bending your arms too early in the 2nd pull.

I'm also feeling right patellar pain TTT and when running. Pain is isolated on the patella's base supero-medio aspect. Pain subsides with rest but is easily re-aggravated.
Hmmm.. may be patellofemoral syndrome. Hard to tell b/c not enough info.

Your hamstrings weak compared to your quads too, yes?

On top of that, my calves are really sore. Probably from trying to do POSE method. I recently switched from Nike Shox to Puma K-Streets. It's going to take time for me to get used to it. Now, I'm hobbling around my house like Ozzy Osbourne...
If you run heel-toe you're gonna have problems with the calves (from pushing off) and/or possibly shin splints as well (from preventing the foot from slapping the ground).

Try some barefoot jogging in a field... will help fix up your form real fast. DO NOT OVERDO POSE ESPECIALLY STARTING. Lots of technique work... no long runs until you have it down.
