Some days

Had a monster route planned for today, but I cracked, hit the wall, bonked, poped, and buckled all at the same time a few hours in. Not entirely sure why, but the 50 mph wind gusts didn't help. At one point I was spinning downhill at 25ish mph when a gust hit me in the chest like a hammer and slowed me to 5 mph in about 20 feet - my brakes don't even work that well. Another time I was cresting a steep pitch when a gust came over the top and literally stoped me in my tracks - dead stop. Time to rest up and ride another day.
