Just came to think of another time I was on my way back from a bicycle trip in strong headwind. I was warm and out of breath and decided to lie down for a while on the embankment where there was shadow. The bicycle kept falling over because of the wind and eventually I just let it lie on the ground. But then I had to deal with worried motorists instead. "Yes, I'm fine thank you." "No, I'm just resting" "Yes, I understand what it must look like. Thank you for your concern! "
I just had to realize that there wasn't going to be any rest until I got home.
