I've fallen off a few times due to feet being clipped in. I also fell off during Coventry Tri a coupel of years ago where there was a right turn at a T-junction so the rule was that you had to stop at the junction, unclip and put a foot down, check for traffic then set off again. I did the unclipping and foot down bit ok but then tried to accelerate with an unclipped shoe. Foot slipped off the pedal and I was left sprawling in the middle of the road.
I think a car did have to stop whilst I picked myself up again. No doubt the marshal enforcing the foot down rule and a good laugh about it.
I went mountain biking at Llandegla for my stag weekend when we got married and went straight over the handlebars and landed on my face, which was rather worrying. Fortunately the graze on my chin had healed in time for the wedding the following weekend.
Good running DT, muddy - rest day for me today.
R paced pyramid session on Wednesday night 200,400,800,400,200m target paces ranged from :530 to 5:40m/mi. I've not checked actuals, but I think I got them about right. 5m easy yesterday.
Lit - enjoy the wine.
