    Re: Falling Over?

    Well, its nice to know its not just me, I fell over one night last week on a run near an industrial estate in the pitch black. Turns out I had gone head first over a 2ft high concrete fence into the blackness. I dont remember landing but as it happens I landed on my hands and knees, I must have the reactions of a cat
    However I havent run since - cos the bruising hasnt come out yet

    I fell over 50meters into the Langdale. That knocked my confidence and must have fallen on another 5 occasions. I reckon I fall over at least once every 4 miles per fell race. Is that normal? Due to this I think my confidence on rocky and steep declines slows me down.

    Re: Falling Over?

    I used to fall a heckuva lot when I started the fell running lark. A good few times an hour out on training runs. Over time I've learnt to pick my feet up and how to heather bash effectively so the number of tumbles I have is small now. Think you just get better at it as time goes on and get more experienced on this sort of terrain....

    That's nuthin' I set my PB in the 2007 Kentmere Horeshoe, with 5 falls on just the descent from Kentmere Pike.

    It can't be more than a mile can it?
