I had three accidents in the last month. I ride downhill to university every morning, and often tired after not much sleep. The route goes through forest and is steep, however despite it being quite dangerous, I ride it with high speed, because I have rode that way about thousand times already, day after day. So after riding bike for years, I feel like falling cannot happen.
So I was riding downhill fast and one spot on the road was a little too muddy that day. A wheel stopped there in place and I got catapulted from the bike. My right leg caught ground, but my body was still falling down. I jumped off my right leg, like you do in running. then left, right, left right. I basically got catapulted off of my bike and changed that motion into sprint in a fractions of second.
That initial right leg push, which absorbed a strong impact gave me even faster speed, therefore I didn't fall off balance/on my face. (btw it got ankle deep in mud : D)
I was like, wtf just happened. Have I got a mini-fucking computer in my head, which calculates the trajectory of motion? :D. I mean, there was very little chance that I would not fall on my hands, face, back, etc... Did you see something similar on youtube?
Later I had similar accident. Also landed on right leg.
Lateer, I decided to run in my neighbourhood. There was frozen rain, an ice hard to see. My both feet went up into the air, I lost all contact with the ground and fall on my back and head simultaneously. The speed of my run probably further accelerated the impact. My arms didn't have time to react and didn't absorb the hit.
I was out of breath for some time, moaning from shock and surprise as I could take any air in the lungs. I felt the impact all over my back, spine and head too. The ice on which my spine hit crushed into cracked ice powder.
After I stood up and took the first breath, I... continued to run. No back problems or pain of any kind whatsoever. All this seems weird, like I am unable to hurt myself... : d
