Disposed of. Spit out. Humiliated. Scourged. I could make excuses but instead I'll just lay here pathetically and try to recover.
Happens to the best of us, my good man. Not that I'm the best of us, but it happens to them too. :D
Relax, pop a cold one (the ultimate emotional recovery drink), and rest up. Take tomorrow off and hop on the bike ready to rock on Tuesday.

It also happens to the worst of us. I should know. However you should take heart in the certain knowledge that if I can increase my shell-resistance, ANYBODY can do it.
A universal truth about racing (for 90% of racers): we are all peloton dogs. And every dog has his day. But that does require that you continue to show up. And that may mean a few shellings. But that's the only way to get faster.

If you're gonna lay her, don't do it pathetically! :D Recover like a man!

She's out of town so I can't really lay her at all but thanks for the spell-check on what is easily my funniest typo in 12 years. Many of my motor functions are disabled at the moment.
it was like this:
With an additional loop of that last hill for another 6 miles. I fell off the front group on the first steep climb and spent the next 5 miles trying to catch them on my own with a gusty headwind. I swore I was going to throw in the towel at least 36 times and had to think about dancing-girls and fresh ripe peaches to make it up the last climb.
