I did a 10k race on Monday night. Had a great time, went home happy, woke up the next day with bruising under my eye. I hadn't been drinking or fighting. Its been a week now and its still the same, its not faded or anything. Its not painful no broken veins just a red/black mark not even any swelling. Has anyone else had this what is it ??
One of my team mates is injured and cant race in the fully booked Brass Monkey Half Marathon. He is giving me his number and we have been told via the website you can only do this via Sports Systems Transfer Service. Been on the website and cant find this form can someone help us please as time is running out ??
Thanks you two for this - no pain around the knee at all its weird - but I think you are right Juggler I think it is a bruised bone. I am just in a panic cause of the race. I have decided to give the race a miss. I have quite a few races coming up in Sept and dont want to knacker them up for the sake of one race.I will do some steady jogging or cycling in a couple of days and keep up with the RICE. It does feel a lot better though. I think I just did too much all at once.
I banged my kneecap the other Saturday and got a normal size bruise but no swelling. Since then it hurts when I run or walk downhill and cycle uphill. The bruise has gone but the kneecap is sore to touch. I have still run and cycled but it got worse when I went speed training road/track at the club I have a 10 mile race on Saturday eek !! Tried the usual Ibuprophen/RICE/stretches whats up with it. Still no swelling.
