What is the likelihood that exercise is causing blood in my urine?

I was wondering if any MeFites had ever experienced blood in their urine as a result of exercise.

I'm male, 38, and a tad obese. My urine today (Friday) was much darker and redder than usual. IANAD, but based on the color I would say there is blood in my urine. I had a urinalysis and prostate exam 3 months ago as part of a physical, and there was nothing unusual.
The only thing I have done differently recently is that I had two sessions with a personal trainer recently, one hour Wednesday and one hour Thursday. I haven't exercised in about 20 years. I googled "blood in urine" and found exercise could be a cause.
But they real reason I am concerned is that my (and fixedgear's) dad had bladder cancer. Yes, I am going to see my doctor about this.
Anybody else ever have a similar experience?
