Training Ride to Hwy 24

Took a late afternoon ride before leaving town for the rest of the week. I rode a brutal 32.45 miles with about half of it into a steady 10 mph breeze. I read somewhere that you can factor about a 3 mph reduction in speed for every 5 mph of wind and boy do I believe it, my legs were crushed on the way back home. I took about 1:51 to ride the route and averaged 17.5 but topped out at 36.9! I did get my heart rate up to 157 average and keep the cadence at 91.
