Random middle aged women won't be calling your shove anywhere near optimally so you scoop a heap of dead money by jamming. She only needs to fold ~50% of the time and even when she calls with something like 66+, A7s+, ATo+ KTs+, QJs+ (she probably isn't calling quite that wide contrary to your belief that she will) you'll have close to 40% equity. "I don't want to race it up here with 20bb" is pretty poor logic.
I understand why you wanted to flat and I think it's okay, but you should be aware that this is a really good resteal spot and if you're passing up edges like this with 20bb you're costing yourself money.
