Running Downhill: Go Gentle
"Combined with previous biomechanics studies, our normal impact force data suggest that downhill running substantially increases the probability of overuse running injury." This is one of the summary statements from the article below. Having practiced Podiatry in San Francisco, with it's 46 official hills, I know the damage running downhill. Runners just have to be smart about them. Charge up the hills and slow down the down hills!! The force of running at impact is between 2-5 times body weight. Running fast and hard down hills can increase them force. Be kind to your body and you will run longer!!
Charge up the hills, and go gently down them
