comment Training for an ultramarathon without hills
Oooh, ouch. To run down hills you absolutely need to land on your forefoot (at least in my opinion!). In Taekwon-Do you are taught to spin on your forefoot so that your toes can control you spin. That reason applies when running downhill. If you land on your heels then you can't control anything and you lose the shock absorbing capability of your foot controlling the motion from the forefoot to the heel. I would figure out why you couldn't land on your forefoot and fix that. You may need to do single-leg balancing exercises (and when you can do them eyes-shut waving your arms - you'll be ready

comment How do I keep my running form up with a broken toe?
I broke my heel once. Did the doctor thing of not running for a while - and then went back to it. You will lose nothing important by not running for a month but trying to exercise during that month is more likely to prolong the healing.
