Hiking short distances and trying to increase pace and not get hurt. Downhill hikes seem to hurt my hips unless I keep my body angle the same as uphill.. However going downhill makes me go pretty fast.. Is this correct ? Also I saw a bobcat, or mountain lion? not sure but I was hiking Bonner Canyon alone. I didn't see any dangerous animals listed on the trail signs, online, etc. and I happened to see the cat in the parking lot as I was driving onto the main road.. It wasn't even in..
