Seriously, just ride, have fun, when you're tired slow down or stop, when you're not tired, ride.

For a beginner they will do nothing but make you feel inferior, incapable, and unable to perform...just ride.
I think a good thing for anyone training (beginner's too) is looking at morning resting heart rate while in bed and you first wake up to tell how tired/fatigued you are. When it was elevated - take it easy - stay in bed. When it low, ride hard.
