You are lucky.
Lucky you haven't done that before, and lucky you didn't hit something hard.
We are just not as young as we once were and our reflexes slow just enough.
We don't bounce or bend like we once did either.
My days of motorcycles, dirt bikes, and water skiing are good memories and still some very careful times still.
What scares me now is climbing latters and climbing on roofs. I used to do it all the time without a thought. Now after knowing several people who have fallen off a ladder, including me, it makes me nervous to get higher then one floor up.
Be careful out there. Glad it wasn't any worse.
