Made the mistake of missing 4th gear.

I was just cruising and for the first time ever I made the mistake of missing 4th gear. It had a hard time going in so I pressed in the clutch again and thought I finally got it to go into gear. Well turns out I dropped it in to second gear instead. Just wondering if I should have to worry about anything? Bent valves? Etc? I revved the RPM's up to 4000 after releasing the clutch. It sounds fine, no check engine light, and it boosts fine. I think I'm good but I thought I'd ask. Has anyone else done this before in their WRX/STi?

If you didn't hear anything go crunch and the car kept moving. Then you got away with one.

Defintely didn't hear any crunch noise. Still has power and moves fine with no hesitation at all.
