+1 to all the great advice given here : too much worrying, recovery riding, continuing improvement over time etc is all very true. 14-15 mph is a fine average over varying terrain and would mean @4 hours saddle time for 60 miles.
Only thing I might add, if you are concerned, is to make sure that you are healthy enough overall to engage in strenuous activity. You didn't mention how long you've been riding or if you are overweight, high b.p. those sorts of things. If you're doctor says your c.v. is up to it then i would have only one last suggestion:
