All you can really do is practice. There is no secret way to get better at something.

Start slow and don't speed up until you can do your decending run at that speed.

I used to have the same problem. Ascending is a lot easier than decending, IMO. Just gotta keep at it.

put your fingers down before you use them
for example if your moving from b to g and the notes you are going to play on g are 10, 9, and 7, in that order, put down 10 and 9 at the same time
