SPORTS PODIATRIST, DR. ROBERT WEISS STATES, "AS WE GO INTO THE SPRING SEASON AND THE BOSTON MARATHON JUST SIX WEEKS AWAY, THE METHOD OF HILL RUNNING NOT ONLY BUILDS MUSCLE STRENGTH, BUT ALSO POWER AND SPEED.  THIS ADDED STRENGTH GIVES AN ADDED PUSH-OFF AND FORWARD RECOVERY OF THE LEG MUSCLES WITHOUT THE FATIGUE.  THE HILL TRAINING METHOD IS A MORE NATURAL WAY OF DEVELOPING MUSCLES RATHER THAN USING WEIGHT-LIFTING EQUIPMENT.  THIS ENDURANCE TRAINING WILL IMPROVE THE ABILITY OF THE HEART TO CIRCULATE BLOOD THROUGHOUT THE BODY, WHICH INCREASES THE AMOUNT OF OXYGEN SUPPLIED TO WORKING MUSCLES.  HOWEVER, SINCE HILL RUNNING CAUSES YOU TO HIT THE GROUND HARDER AS YOU COME DOWNHILL, THERE IS A GREATER DEGREE OF STRESS TO THE MUSCLES AND BONES, WHICH POSES A GREATER RISK FOR INJURY.  IT IS THEREFORE IMPORTANT TO WEAR PROPER FOOTGEAR WITH GOOD STABILITY AND SHOCK ABSORPTION."
