I ran in Gatineau Park, Quebec on Saturday. The 16km route had about +/- 450m (1500 ft) of elevation. I found myself still struggling to handle the downhills. I found that I had to slow down quite a lot to prevent heal strike. It feels like I'm still at a loss as to best handle going downhill. From what I have read, I should be increasing the cadence, bending my knees more, and relaxing. It just does not seem to be registering with my body. I want gravity to do the work. Any suggestions from the group?
