Muscles I don't have

Here we are almost at Christmas and I'm still on the cane. But walking better. Nothing hurts.  And what I've learned from physical therapy is that I've probably been walking wrong for years. I've always had a very fast, purposeful walk, but it doesn't tuck my tail under me and it doesn't use my hips correctly.  I don't wiggle. So I probably haven't had the right walking muscles in many, many years.

Worse, I didn't walk -- I POWER WALKED.  Miles and miles.  Do I need to know this now--that something I've been doing since I was a year old I've been doing wrong?

I doubt I will ever look like a picture perfect walker.  But I can definitely cover some ground.
