Blood stains on heavy bag afraid if splashed to cracked lips

Hello my question is about today at my boxing gym I was hitting a heavy bag and saw several red stains, looked about a couple hours old or maybe more, but lets say an hour, and I was hitting it and have cracked lips, would it be posible to contract hiv if the blood splashed or got to my gloves and lips, does it live outside the body, or if the stains were dry as I rubbed one with the gloves after seeing this and was dry
