Running Tip of the Month
Focus on Form
While no single downhill running form is a golden ticket to eliminating soreness, you can focus on a few specific areas when attempting those steep downhills on Comrades this year:
Stay upright. Try and maintain a posture that is perpendicular (at an angle of 90 degrees to a given line, plane or surface) to the ground, except on the steepest grades. Leaning back and over-striding increases impact, adds braking and offers less control.
Look ahead. Choose a line that offers the optimum balance between maintaining momentum and minimising the risk of falling.
Increase cadence. Think light, quick steps. The goals is to float down the trail.
