I think the reason you feel more tired, or least more tired than you would expect for the distance, is the total amount of time you're spending outside, and on the bike.

There's also some mental fatigue, particularly if you haven't completely made peace with the fact its going to be a slow ride taking a long time.

Ever play a slow round of golf on a crowded course? Even walking, a round of Golf is not that big of energy ouput, but take 5 hours to do it, and you often feel pretty tired afterwards.
