I decided to measure my Right calf again today to see whether it had increased in muscle bulk. It has, and has increased from a circumference of 40 to 41cm.

I have finally become more aware of my gluts and can certainly employ them in static poses or in simple exercises where I can think more carefully about what I am doing, and worry less about the complexity of the exercise. It will be a while yet before I can employ my turnout from the hip all the time.

The only real downer - apart from straining my left calf today, is that my back has been a bit sore over the week which is possibly from the new glut exercises. This will have to be monitored as I certainly don't want to set that off again.

Anyway, despite the negatives, there is some progress, and as my ballet teacher says, "Rome wasn't built in a day!"
