I thought I would write to see what everyone is doing with their week off from kendo. What do you do when you are away from kendo to keep motivated, in shape ect? As for myself, I find that doing at least 100 suburi a day has always allowed for me to stay motivated and somewhat in shape. I also like to read and reread some manuals and books on kendo to keep the fire there. The most important thing for me is to remained focus on what I was working on before I left and not to change it. Are there any things that you do to keep yourself in the right mental framework? Add it to the comments and let's see if we can keep our minds as sharp as our swords. Cheers!
