Read Trixtons post again, its good.

The knees aren't like the eyes, the knees are where the muscles of the upper legs and lower legs connect, they are tendon and ligament adhered to bone, they are only reacting to overuse, the muscles connected are restricted and need to heal, and it takes time to build up muscles, do it to fast and you have tendonitis, which is knee pain.
I suggest a foam roller or better, the triggerpoint from eastern mt sports, roll before exercise and again after.
Deadening the pain and continuing the activity isn't going to go well, properly hydrating and nutritionally eating (no sugar) will lessen recovery time.
It's not the speed skating doing damage to knees, it's the overuse, moderate, hydrate, repete
