The constant stepping to the sides can cause fatigue in the legs particularly the R knee because of the sideways force needed. The solution is to maintain a small side to side swinging of the hips swinging onto the side of the foot that weight is being transferred onto as the foot goes onto the ground. This is enough to lift the other foot for next low step without much knee effort and temporarily stores the energy during the pause in the slow direction changing steps.

Repeat counts in mirror image on the opposite feet step R to the side and pause rocked onto it but with the R foot slightly behind.
