in the back of my mind I'm mulling over some aspect of MA. Still...it isn't training. (Unless...one considers the act of staying mentally focused on MA a type of training.)

Harlan, if I understand your MA preferences (forms specifically) I would say staying mentally focused could be considered training. Heck I can remember waking up in the middle of the night with an idea about a form and later applying it. But I could be a bit strange as I seem to find Martial application everywhere I look.
