There's a certain kinesthesia to being an ambulatory human being that just tells you how to fall. Where you find trouble is that odd bit where you don't get deep enough and the wrong edge finds a rut and sends you flailing before your brain knows what happened.
That hurts less with pads, but it still usually hurts.
