Stage racing without TT bike

I have a timed stage race coming up in a few weeks and the first stage is a 5 mile TT. I don’t have a TT bike or any aero equipment for my road bike. Is there anything that I should attempt to adjust or practice or set up for the time trial or should I just go full send on my drops?

(I’m a cat 5 and not expecting the podium. I’m there to learn and have fun but I want to do the best I can with what I’ve got.)

In many cat-5 fields for stage races the aero equipment is limited - are there any limitations for your field or will there be guys with full TT setups?

I’d say buy some aerobars and start there. Do a few pre-rides with them. Don’t overthink it.
