ok guys, i posted last week that i signed up for my first ever TT this coming tuesday and another one in may. got some good advice in that thread.
my question now - is there anything in particular i should do to prepare for tuesday?
yesterday was a fast group ride with hills, today off, tomorrow another fast group ride, prolly off sunday or the gym. last night was kinda hard (my avg was low, 16.6, but it felt like i shoulda had a higher avg. and yes, i read the post about averages not having much meaning) and i'm not sure i feel like riding today unless it would be something short and easy, like 20mi+/-.
should i have the pasta for supper the night before? is there anything i should do the day of, that i normally wouldn't do??
the second thing...i've found maybe two women's road races that i might sign up for. i'm not sure i want to try a crit, they just seem scary. are women allowed to sign up for men's races?
