The trip got to me. I had this plan today — after our workout, while the rest of the team went to see the Great Wall, I was going to rent a bike and just bike up and down the streets of Beijing and see all parts of this city. But I?m whipped. I didn?t really have my strength at the workout and I was a little achy, probably just from the trip or whatever. My timing was off hitting. So after getting back from the workouts, I didn?t even go out. I went to sleep. I got up in time for the reception at the hotel.
Tomorrow, we?ve got an early bus for the game and I?m going to prepare like it?s any day game. I?m going to get there early for batting practice, take some soft toss, start seeing the ball, just my regular routine for a game. After the game, I?ll get some dinner, but then got to get back and pack because we leave Sunday.
This trip is going fast. Check back tomorrow.
