Fun fact 10/23/2016

Running on a downward slope increases your capable speed on a flat surface. Sprinting downhill develops your coordination by forcing your legs to learn how to handle high-speed travel. Over time your coordination will improve in response to the increased stride rate. Consequently, your running speed on horizontal surfaces will increase because your peak stride rate will be more rapid.
