    Hi there Bunny

    Were you wearing a wetsuit for the swim? If so did you perhaps bruise yourself getting it off when you were cold? You know, rolling it down your legs etc?

    mmm went in with suit most days it mite explain some of the bruising but i didin't have any race so didin't take the suit off in a hurry...does anyone know if you bruise easier when cold thanks to the great irish summer we're having the water is still freezing!!

    What state are the veins in your legs in? If you have any incompetent (varicose) veins then stretching them about when pulling a suit on and off can cause bruising. This would probably affect your lower legs most.

    no problems with veins and the bruising is mostly above the knee..doesn't look to bad today!

    Any medication likely to make a difference? I am sure you would have mentioned this but you never know..
