One funny thing I noticed is that all the adrenaline came afterwards when I was "safe". While he was pushing me I was as calm as a kitten. Overall I think that's a good thing, making me less prone to do stupid shit. The downside would be that when/if shit really does hit the fan adrenaline would probably be my best friend.
You noticed the adrenaline afterwards is what happened. Usually in those situations, the adrenaline kicks in and your dont notice it due to the situation, and then afterwards is when you notice the effects. Its kind of funny that way.
