Bruises galore

I am just learning how to do the roll. I was successful in doing ~20-30 rolls by myself. However, after ~3 hours of practice, I found my right hip had a huge bruise, as well as smaller bruises on my knees. Am I doing something wrong technique-wise, or does this indicate my boat doesn't fit me well, or is this normal when doing rolls?
