Check these out, too...
While it might seem silly to book it backwards, doctors and physical therapists say retro running is actually a great alternative to, you know, regular running or other cardio options. According to The New York Times, running backwards requires you to expend more energy—making it a better workout—while taking it easier on your body—no more shin splints (yes!).
One word of warning? Try it on a smooth surface in an area that won’t have you dodging obstacles, like your school’s track. This is also a great exercise to try with a buddy, so ya don’t run into other people (or, you know, the fence).
Would you give retro running a try? Tell us in the comments!

I'm on a track and field team and we always do that for practice instead of running the proper way, it helps our legs get stronger, have better reflexes, and run more smoothly on the track.
The first I did it, I got a cut on my hand but it's gone now. I aint got no worries, I aint got no words. ;D

Reverse running is sooo much fun! And it gives you a better workout! You have to ease into it though, don't start your treadmill at a running pace at first. Start realllly slow.
