Blood In Urine After 15km Run

Recommended Posts

I think I'm getting old.  After settle one problem (plantar fasciitis) another problem come.  Anyway, back to the main topic.  Lately I found that after I run more than 15km, when I urine it's come out with blood.  I know some might be asking is it because of sex disease or whatever 🤔, the thing is I only have sex with my wife 🤫 and recently got a medal for more being a regular blood donor which means I'm 100% clean 😇

One day I collect my bloodied urine and see a Dr.  The Dr himself is a runner.  He told me that this happens because my blood vessel at my urinal organ blow up and cause the blood mixed with my urine during a continuous run of more than 1 hour.  Several of his patients also face the same problem and unfortunately there's no fix. 

Does anyone face the same problem as mine? As any advise? 🙏

No. Of course not. 🤣

Let me just say that blood in a person's urine (the medical term is "hematuria") can also be due to a lot of other causes - kidney stones, cancer, trauma, etc. I'd say those persons who'd immediately jump to a conlusion that it was because of something naughty says a lot about them and their lifestyle. 🤣 -

Anyways, back to topic...

Foremost, you did the right thing and consulted your M.D. about it.

Excessively strenuous exercise can also cause hematuria (as diagnosed by your M.D).

Although I'm also a long distance runner and run the occasional ultra (whether organized race, or personal LSD), I haven't experienced this myself. I did know a few runners who went through that though, but these were in really long events (200km distance races or longer) that lasted over the course of several days. When they quit running those extreme distance ultras it usually stopped as well.

What is considered to be "excessive" varies from person to person though, and a 15-16km run is actually quite a distance in itself.

Aside from what your doctor already told you to do (and I'd say follow his advice) as a fellow runner, I'd suggest lowering your weekly mileage for now. After all, you just recovered from another injury (plantar fasciitis), so it would be a good idea to go easy on yourself for the time being! 🥴

Thanks Raijin!!! I'm glad that you never suspect is sexual problem 🤭 I still want to visit more Drs to seek more opinion.  Need to understand the root cause.  In the mean time, I'll seek your advise by decreasing my running volume 🙏

No worries. I encountered this problem twice when running HM when the weather was very hot and I was like very tired. LOL. I had thought because of insufficient water input, but perhaps the reasons can be found here: https://www.newhealthadvisor.org/blood-in-urine-after-running.html

I didn't encounter this issue running long distance in the evenings.

i encountered it once after 2017 or 2018 Standard chartered FM... did some research and it mentioned that if this bleeding persists, then need to see doctor, if it doesnt, then it's alright. I think there is no need to reduce the running volume too much, it can be just adhoc or one-off.

I respectfully advise caution on that.

Blood in the urine is not “normal”, and in my opinion, should always be evaluated by a doctor – even if it turns out to be nothing serious. That’s why I gave the poster a “thumbs up” for consulting his MD.

If it’s something benign, then it’s not time wasted.  You are healthy and well. You ought to be happy, because not many people can claim to be, right? 😅

Running is very harsh on the body. You're talking about forces 3 to 4 times of your total body weight crashing down on your body with every step, no matter how efficient your form and bio mechanics may be. You multiply those stresses over the entire distance and time you run, and its a miracle that we actually don't sustain any damage afterwards. For those runners who are disciples of the "barefoot or minimalist" school of thought, it might even be worse.

The human body is a resilient machine, but we also have to care for it and not abuse it too much 😇

If you still feel uneasy, perhaps you could get a referral from your GP doctor to see a urologist. 

By the way, I did a quick internet search and noted that 15-16 kms, more or less, is already the distance from Changi Airport to Aljunied Station. A half marathon on the other hand, is from Changi Airport all the way to Raffles Place. It’s funny we don’t seem to notice the kilometers pass when we’re training, but I tell you, if you ever make me walk all that way, I’m going to be among the first to howl and complain! LOL 😜

Covid-19 pandemic has changed what is norm [past] Run-in Place to the present [technology] Virtual Runs...

If uncle has done nothing to embrace [Apps - technology enabled] then, 2020 will mean NO Run-in Place, and continue to wait out for 2021...already most Spring Marathons starting from China, Japan, and even USA have cancelled...some have moved to 2022...most have hoped for Fall 2021...

Run Locally but Run Global Virtually...Boston, New York, Tokyo, London, Melbourne, Malaysia, Singapore...with Cross-border suspensions and major international cities announcing under lockdowns...

2021 has started, and soon ..from Spring going to Summer...from Fall and then Winter...2021 may just like another breeze...just like 2020...

ask yourself, "where are you today, and where do you want to go in 2021?"

Good point mentioned on the embracing of new habits and practices, given that Covid-19 has already forced most of us to get used to the "new normal". The key goal is to reduce social interactions/transmission of the virus as big scale events are deemed to be of higher-risk.

Even though virtual runs may not be the most preferred option, virtual runs provide runners a choice to get their runs done.

According to a reply reported with the similar question...

Current timeline in Covid-19 worldwide...Vaccination...

Vaccine isn't a cure... it is just to prepare your body to manufacture the necessary antibodies to combat covid...

Side effects...

it may take "doses" to really to say we are Covid-19 "free", but really?!?

Even though virtual runs may not be the most preferred option, virtual runs provide runners a choice to get their runs done...

well said, let's say 2021 may still be a year when run-in place race may still have postponed or even cancelled...Jan/Feb 2021..

jan-b.jpg

it is the info from here ("MyBestRun") i.e. when Virtual Races are the options when Races are cancelled...

so uncle took the opportunity to participate (entry) in the Global "Virtual Races" as motivation to complete "unfinished" races worldwide because of Covid-19...when travelling overseas are really "closed" worldwide...even if travelling is abled...mass travelling (budget) may not be possible for the next new norm...of course, travelling expenses may be made more expensive because of the "Control Measures" of pandemic health risks...

    • that is good.... a goal setting right from the start of 2021 and chiong for it...
    • maybe from uncle's perspectives on virtual events (locally and globally)... yes, must agree with @beast, this Virtual Event is very much for those who are newbie runners (who may want to upgrade from brisk walk to run)...21KM in 1 month (very generous)...depends on individuals... given that the race is virtual, again agree with @beast, the organizer must bear the cost (inclusive as participation fee)...if this is covid-19 social distancing measures, participants have the rights to have "items as specified to be delivered"... and if the shipping cost (add-on) is not preferred, it is as good as user will consider if participation is necessary... from uncle's observation, the reason why if the organizer wants you to pick up is "shopping" at their stores...marketing gimmicks...in most virtual races uncle had participated, uncle browse "Store/Shop" online, and if want add-ons, just top-up and find out, what will be the reasonable "shipment cost"...of course, expect FOC lah...again if not satisfy..then no need to "buy" online or even register "online" for the event. Example for JustRunLah!Connect Virtual Race event...$18.88 2 months to complete 18.88KM or 88.88KM (very generous)... the only difference is the participation fee included Shipping..which will expect the organizer to inform participants (from 5 February 2021...expect to deliver and to receive...otherwise email...) because 2021 is still "covid-19 pandemic" like 2020.. better to stay home, stay safe, stay strong, and remain "Virtual Run" in Run (Exercise) program...👌
