I guess for some of you guys this isn't even a thing, since you probably ride lots of centuries or longer, but for someone who is embarking on their first century, is there anything I need to know or should be doing on those last few days, say the week, before the event?
What should my riding look like? Should I change it up at all or am I okay to just ride the same routine I always do?
Do I ride the day before? Am I taking it easy the week or few days before?
What about food? The night before what do I eat? Carb up? Protein up? Lots of water?
And anyone have suggestions for the night before with sleep? I'm that kind of person that can't sleep a wink before something exciting, even if I have to be well rested. I ran in the Hartford Marathon and didn't got more than three hours of sleep. I drive back to school after breaks, or home for a break, and I sleep a few hours. I don't want to drug myself because I've been known to sleep 14 hours on benadryl and I can't stand that melatonin stuff, it makes me feel drunk the next day.
