Certainly not a bonk but just slow to warm up. Like many, I have hills to contend with in the first 5 miles of any ride from my house...I can push things too hard at the start and suffer the rest of the ride. If I do this, I often find myself thinking "Why am I doing this? Is this fun?"...but then things improve as I warm up, which it sounds like you did.
On my ride yesterday, I was very conscientious about my level of effort during the first 10 miles and didn't push things. I only did 24 miles but I was able to meter out effort and had a very satisfying ride overall.
