I did a half last month and I hadn't trained enough for it. Finished fine and as fast as I wanted but it took a lot out of me, and I didn't get back on my bike for two weeks! My only recommendation is -- make sure you schedule and do a couple of recovery rides with no more than one day off after the race. Once you're riding again it's fine, but when you've used yourself up like that a ride may not be something you want to do. Do it anyway.
