What goes up, must come down. If we are talking about racing then how quick you come down can make or break a race. Ask any fell runner in the UK. Going up my hurt the lungs, heart and legs but coming down requires a different skill. A skill that needs to be fine tuned and practiced. However, that ‘natural ability’ will always shine through and set one runner apart from the rest.
