My First Race
 
I'm 15 and plan to do my first race on Sunday. I have no idea how to prepare. If it is Tuesday now and the race is on Sunday, what would be the most effective thing for me to do riding wise? Should i do intervals today then go easy the rest of the week or what? Thanks a lot.

By the way, it is a 20 mile criterium. Its not a very big deal, but I want to try and do well.

I'll throw my .02 in. Take Friday off completely. Do a short ride on Saturday with some minor accelerations (nothing that will make you tired the next day, but put some effort in)

Mon-Thurs do some short but intense rides/intervals. Earlier in the week, put in the toughest and or longest intervals. and then taper the duration of the interval and the amount of intervals but keep intensity high.

thats what i've read to do
