The fact is the hillier the running course the greater the risk of back injury. If all runners did was run on flat ground, stress on the low back would be significantly reduced. However running is not that simple, see runners are “unique” individuals. When runners see at hill it is a challenge. It makes you stronger, it decreases you race time; it helps you crush a goal. A runner will run a hill, not only once, but several times until the can no longer walk never mind run. If they run it 5 times one week, it is 6 the next. The workouts never get easy, but the milestones get bigger!
For all of you that love your hills you are about to get a healthy dose of your own medicine.[…]
