You've done BRAG twice now if I am not mistaken, several metrics and an Imperial as I recall. I wouldn't call that inexpirienced by a long shot.
You've got three options in this case:
1: Reduce the tension in your pedals so clipping in and out requires less force.
2: Unclip your foot and come to a stop as usual to rest before
3: If you find yourself in a situation like this, slide your foot out of your shoes.
Congratulations on the ride Greg_R, excellent work
