I also faced exactly this problem 9 years ago. But my it occurred twice. During that period, I was on a long vacation coz I quit my job. I kept jogging daily and it resulted bruises on my thigh.
I've checked with my doctor, he said maybe I exercise too vigorous coz I ran more than 2km. Partly he said my heart is not too strongly and another reason is that my blood circulation is also not flowly smoothly.
But when I continued with my jogging regime, the bruises started to go away. Now, there are no bruise anymoe.
Don't worry, it might be that you have a poor blood circulation. IF you are worried, then go for a heart check-up.
