I think it's sweat!

Seriously, I used to go for long walks (10 miles+) with weights on my ankles. It certainly burned more calories and made my legs stronger.

Best of luck with your work-out. :wink:

Maille is pretty heavy (20 pounds). Might not sound like a lot but getting maille on is no easy feat.


Depends what weave and metal you have. Aluminum wouldn't be bad, but even the lightest 4-in-1 steel maille can weigh in at close to 30 pounds. Also, I once went onto my street with a trench coat on and a towel on my head (don't ask) and I received some um.. not so nice gestures from a couple of people in cars. :wink:
