Keeping busy!

Its been busy around here. It is such a fun time around the holidays and the weekends have been spent getting ready for Christmas and enjoying some of the mild days that we have had. I have got a few good fun mountain bike days in and I have been getting on the road which is great. Training has been very low lately. Swimming is right on target though. I am swimming 5 - 6 days and feel myself getting stronger again. Everything has been at a low intensity which is always good although I find myself itching to go hard.
Biking has been sparse and running even less due to an ankle issue that is finally calming down. I'm now in my 4th week of yoga and still enjoying it.
In the winter I like to try rebuild a little strength and I have been in Physical Therapy three days a week trying to fix the nagging issues from the end of the season and trying to balance and rebuild muscles. Very important!

On the homefront my son Tanner is now a candidate for his back belt in karate after passing his test. I am very proud of him. He has been doing Karate for 4 years and has wanted to quit on a few occasions. I have not allowed him too and for this he is thankful as he is now 1 year away from being a black belt. This shall be a hard year for him but as I have told him with commitment and hard work he will get there.

Sweet on your son being so close to the black belt. My daughter talks endlessly about when she will get hers she'll be going for blue this summer but I'm not sure if it translates as I assume every place is different.
