My main exercise for the last year has been walking my dog for 2-3 miles in the morning. We recently got a peloton so I’ve been doing a peloton ride most evenings and doing weight training three times a week. I have started to see random bruises on my legs and am wondering if this is due to suddenly putting more strain on my body? I’m pale and bruise very easily, but I’m kinda freaked out. Just wondering if anyone else has ever experienced this.

Go see a doctor.
Bruising can be the result of iron and vitamin C and D deficiency OR the sign of an underlying health issue

Planning to go to the doctor next week, just wondering if anyone has ever dealt with this.

It depends - how heavy are the weights ? you can definitely bruise yourself lifting weights, but agreed you should see a doctor.

I broke my toe dropping a 45 lb plate on it, but bruising from a peleton? I’d get blood work done - may be a nutritional deficiency. Iron or inability to absorb it can be a bruising culprit, as can blood thinners. Too many possibilities.

A functional medicine person at heart…How’s your diet, OP?
