It's a rather strange sensation to be riding fast enough (avg. 14.47 mph) that it feels like I have a headwind, even though I don't. To some cyclists, 14.47 mph is plodding, but for me it's still pretty fast. I worked to hold to at least 15 mph as much as possible; a "pace" ride, I call it.
For several years now, increasing my cruising speed to 15 mph has been on my list of goals. I always fell short, but now I finally seem to be making some real progress towards that goal. It's about time!
