First 20+ mile ride

After a long weekend of no riding, I felt better than ever this morning when I hopped on the bike for my daily morning ride. I felt so good, that I extended my ride to about 22 miles without stopping . I usually separate my rides into about 12-15 in the morning and 8-10 in the evening, but it wasn't as hard as I had expected to continue. I feel like I could have ridden 40 miles with no problem. It felt good when I was finished, a little too Is this how it starts?
