I must confess I am still struggling with the analysis of the gait cycle, what accelerates, what decelerates, contracts, releases, how to see the heel strike and how the foot then rolls up over to the outside, then the inside and out the big toe. So clearly, physical activity is very complex.
And yet ….. every child has mastered to art of walking (to a certain degree) before the age of 1.
I believe that we all have an inate ability to move correctly, and, if left to nature, things would not need to be that complicated. What I observe are the blessings and curses of modern life at work which replaces endless crunched-up immobility for the effortless fluent mobility we should inately know.
And once we are beyond the age of a child, we need to acquire as a skill which should just have come natural to us.
Great question, Joanne. I love people who make me think 🙂
