Just simple day of pretty relaxed but warm aikido practice due to AC not working and temperature whole week being in low to mid 80's and humid. Bled on mat again, so annoyed how my feet always seem to open up around nail or because of old cuts. Planned on doing a ride to open up legs/hips but weather in afternoon turned to really heavy rain and storms for most afternoon. Other than that hydrated, carbo loaded, got gels, and ready for 26 miles tomorrow!!!!
PS - Bought a 40lb vest today and wore around for 3-4 hours straight, felt heavy but not too bad till I just took it off......Core and back are sore!!!! LOLOL
