Ok, you mentioned adrenaline and hormones. This may be true, however, I was not excited or even concerned. All that went through my mind was that I tripped and fell. I got back up and continued to do the exercises. This is also only one example. At school over the years I have been hit many times and my only response was "Hey, that's my shoulder", etc., and then a laugh. I've also noticed since I did this that I have been able to run longer distances,and put more effort into activities because pain was not diminishing my stamina.
P.s. It was my second broken bone in almost the same place, except on the other hand(I have a tendancy to try and catch myself while falling, usually it results in an injury). Anyway, it was about a year and a half earlier and it hurt pretty badly.
