mtb'ing is painful....duh

I tried to tackle a new downhill section today that i normally pass on, and take the "easy" way down. Did all the wrong things im not supposed to do. Locked up the front brake and went for a ride...twice. Im not actually sure why I fell the second time, it happened so quick. But I know the first time was a killer. I landed on my left arm that was tucked in, and basically crushed the crap out of my ribs...knocked the wind out of me. I thought for a while i might have cracked 1 or 2, but its not so bad now, I get a little pain if i breathe deeply, but i can pretty much function normally and move around fine.

Got up after that fall, brushed myself off, caught my breathe and continued down..to fall one more time before i made the bottom...doh!

I just hope i feel better by the weekend.
