Video Update, October 2018

The video I’m posting today shows an interesting difference of “mind over muscle.”  One focus I have right now is dropping to AFO braces only, which means activating knee muscles that have not been strong enough to move out of KAFOs.  In the first half of the video, you can see that I'm working more on distance and movement.  In the second half, there is more concentration on a very specific motion: pushing forward and keeping my left leg in a straighter step pattern, even if it takes more time and effort. 
We don’t usually think about slight differences like this, but I thought this video demonstrates how much they actually matter.  Typically, it's not this easy to see a small change of focus playing out.
