        as super as all these videos and book photos are, everyone seems to be on a flat surface. my daily hike/trail running workout is on a super hilly surface. it is steep, uneven, slippery, often muddy,rooty,  rocky,  sometimes on a LOT of snow. (i know, fun! right?) (seriously.) my 2 questions are: 1. any special tips for proper alignment when running or walking on a very steep and uneven surface? sometimes i lean forward. like a lot. is that OK? horrible? is the sideways shuffle on downhill good or silly? and 2. are tools like snowshoes, yaktrax and ski poles which one  might use in wintry mountainous areas harmful to alignment over time?

          If something is helping you to maintain a more stable position or more stable footing use it.
