Topic - Technique/tips for running downhill

williemiller - on 09 Jun 2014
I've recently started running as a means of keeping fit when I don't have time for a cycle.I enjoy the running but feel my natural action is awkward/jarring when going downhill. I think I'm creating a lot of impact as I feel a jarring going through the back of my pelvis and a tremor through the lovehandles. I'm wondering if this is down to technique/shoes etc.

A bit of background to answer any queries. I'm mid thirties fit and active but never been a distance runner. I'm 6' tall 13st 3lbs with a BMI of 25.1. I run in Reebok shoes, not sure of the model but they are a running shoe. I run on tarmac and trails. Any advice gratefully received.
