Achilles Tendons Survive Hill Workouts, but there is a Catch!!

This is a great article stating that well trained achilles tendon survive the stresses of running hills (like in my beloved San Francisco). However, achilles and other body parts for that matter, do not like sudden changes in workouts (like adding hills, speed, or distance). So, make each transition gradually and you will do fine!!
