    After a great swim and light weight workout I had some blood in my piss.icon_eek.gif I drank about 2 pints of water during my workout (swim and weights). Does this happen to anyone else? This is the third time this year I've experienced this.

    Going to doctor at the end of the week just in case.

    Happened to me after a run earlier this summer. Was one of those super hot days and I was sweating like crazy. Stopped at the end of my run (on trails) and went to pee. And it was all blood.

    It freaked me out a bit. Took in lots of fluids the rest of the day and didn't show any signs of blood later. I ended up going to my doctor just to get it checked out.

    He said that these things can happen for lots of reasons and most of them were nothing to worry about. He took a sample and sent it to the lab and everything checked out ok.

    Hopefully, you'll have a similar outcome bud.

    Could be dehydration, but get it checked out by a real Dr. of Urology. A close buddy of mine has this happen to him and his Dr. said it was from friction from running in his bladder. He is a biathlete and sometimes he overtrains.

    Still go see a urologist!!

    Called hematuria... could just be overtraining or anything else depending on what other symptoms you have.. best to report to the doctor to be sure... I wish you good health ;)

    Just be glad the blood isn't in your urine BEFORE the workout! icon_eek.gif

    Ok but srsly, like others said, see a doc. Unless I haven't been introduced yet, we have no MD's in this forum who are familiar with that symptom.

    This happened to me years ago, and it turned out to be a tiny kidney stone. Whatever it is, blood isn't supposed to be in your urine, so a trip to the doctor is definitely in order.

    Pardon my grammar, I'm using my phone to respond.

    The kidneys are the hardest hit organ (besides the skin) when doing exercises. With the release of lactic acid, suppliment residue (if you take any), [Im]proper hydration prior to exercise, and just the everyday functions, somthing is bound to happen.

    After my heavy weight training, sometimes my urine us darker than normal, or even a little cloudy; I check with my doctor (who specializes in sports medicine) and he said that its totally fine if there is some blood [just like a boxer urinating blood after a kidney shot]. But just like Paulflexes mentioned, just be lucky that there wasn't blood BEFORE your work out.

    This may sound funny, or 'gross' or whatever, but moniter what comes out of your body JUST as much as you monitor what goes in. If you notice something in your urine or feces [or even if your sweat smells a certain way], your body not may be correctly responding to something and it may be serious.

    Get your urine checked by your dotor if you haven't done so if this blood in the urine happens often.

    Thanks for the comments. Dr. sez there is nothing wrong with my bladder, etc. Just need to make sure to hydrate more aggressively. The crappy little pool where i swim is kept quite warm. I imagine that sometimes I sweat more in the water than I realize and don’t drink enough after long swims. On the morning the blood-pee happened, I swam hardish for about 1.5 hours and then did cardio and core afterward...and with the weather being so hot and humid here - I probably lost tons of water.

    Thanks again.
