Nothing stays constant. All of us need the ability to find new pathways, discover new solutions & alter our behaviors, creating our own evolution.
Walking is one of my favorite activities. Daily, I walk 40 minutes (at least). I get sunshine, fresh air and time for myself. And moving my whole body feels great. This recharges me and helps free the tension I’ve stored in my body from my other activities.
I know you can achieve good results from walking too.
KEEP THESE KEY THINGS IN MIND -
Play the following game with yourself:
In a standing position, leaving the toes of the left foot on the floor as you raise the left heel off the floor – Let the knee bend and when your toes are about to come off the floor. Look at where your knee is pointed.
Are you headed in this direction?
This will give you your normal pattern.
If your knee is straight forward pointed in the direction you are going ,AWESOME!
If not and your knee is pointed at an angle away from center front - you will have tension in your leg adductors (inside thighs) and hip rotators (buttocks). Tension in these areas will compete with the action of the leg swinging straight forward. Stretch these areas.
