Is that possible?

Last night I was trying new goggles at the store and I was pushing them on my face to see if they fit. I was doing this for about 15 minutes. THis morning about 2/3 of my left eye white is bloodshot. What the heck happened? I know this can happen when diving if you don't equalize your mask, but is it possible to do just trying on goggles? I don't recall any injury to the eye.

Summary of last few workouts:
Sunday: pool laps with old goggles.
Monday: Low intensity bike followed quickly by low intensity run.

I am also wondering if this could be a stress thing.
