    Lose weight and gain strength?

    That may sound insensitive, but if simple momentum is exceeding your ability to stabilize on a decline, it sounds like you could attack this particular problem from both sides at once.

    I have the most problems walking across hills.

    That is exactly the final plan but I have to do this again on Monday, and I don't think I can lose 20lbs and gain much more coordination in a week -- and it's most certainly not going to help if I twist something before I can do that.

    Refuse the exercise until you're capable of performing it.

    No reasonable system will risk injuring a student. Discuss the matter with the instructors or their superiors.

    Edit: And if you really want to press the point, have a doctor or sports equivilent make a written recommendation. No school will risk the litigation of ignoring a doctor's instructions.

    But that would cost money. D:

    And I highly doubt that anyone would be able to find anything wrong.

    Wow, what a strange gym class.

    As for going downhill, I'd forget trying to powerwalk downhill. That's hard stuff when your momentum gets going.

    If you're a heavier person, taking it slower downhill is better for you because you will have greater momentum. Maybe that's why you're falling over...you are not accustomed to quickly adapting your posture and footing to shift your weight and control your momentum. Or your gait prevents you from doing such easily.

    But hey, at least you don't consistently fall down going up inclines! That's even more embarrassing.


    I would suggest not doing something your body isn't used to at full tilt. That's likely to cause injury.

    Maybe you need more practice at going down inclines to build up a muscle memory so you can later do so faster. I can understand why your body wouldn't be adjusted to such a thing if you have not done much (prior to the class) that involves going up and down hills are quick speeds on a daily basis...most everyday activities do not involve this.

    I don't see how you're going to succeed at anything if they're piling body issues onto your plate when you've already got a full load of academic concerns. If you're stuck focusing on this stuff, it's going to take away time and energy from your classwork, which WILL hurt your GPA. It just doesn't make sense... it seems like you're always falling between the cracks or something. This is the kind of stuff there are systems in place to prevent, but you always seem to slip between the gears and find yourself in the middle of situations with unreasonable expectations that they refuse to help you with.

    I talked to the teacher today.

    At first she said get my ears checked.

    Then she said she didn't notice I had fallen behind so much because she was in the front of the line.

    (I feel like even more of a retard now)

    Upon looking at how I walk, she said that I walk with my feet too close together. My feet need to be as wide as my shoulders. Or something.

    It's very strange to walk that way... I may still try the Dr. Scholls, though.

    sorry you fall down, haph.


    It could be anything!
    The teacher was right though it could have something to do with your inner ear, the center that controls balance and where you are in relation to the space around you. Any dizziness?
