I'm back! I had a hard time logging back into the site. Anyway, I have been logging in some good miles on the trails at the state park up the road from me. I have to wear my vff 's because the park is fairly new and the trails are covered in gravel. I just cant figure out a safe downhill strategy. What works best for me now is to lean back take short steps and land on the ball. I'm worried that might be too much for my feet. I suffered a stress fracture last fall and really don't want yo be there again. I'm sure y'all have some great expierience with this and I was hoping for some tips. Thanks!
