throwing any grenade or shooting a rocket at your own feet will cause a minimal amount of damage and you will still be able to run at full speed and have no Injury effects from the explosion

blow yourself up with a grenade or a rocket at your feet
Most Gls and Rocket launchers have a safety trigger that activates the warhead only after the projectile has traveled a set distance: it MAY be that this feature is damage implemented, but the visual explosion triggers anyways because it wasn't correctly deactivated (yet)...
I was able to repeat this yesterday in a mission I made. Normal difficulty, AI squaddie was prone next to me. I dropped a frag right on his back and ran. BOOM, he's still there. Dropped another directly on him, BOOM! I hear "wounded!". Dropped a third frag on his back and he finally dies.
Apparently the safest thing to do when a grenade is tossed at you is to dive on it.
