Welcome to the world of bike racing! Be prepared to get your a$$ handed to you in your first few races - it happens to everyone and is a cycling rite of passage.
Training smart is the key and you'll see changes from what you're doing already. If the coach is worth his/her salt, you should be doing less miles, but more hard ones. And some totally easy ones too. And some time off the bike!
Trust the process, focus and you'll get there.
EDITED to add:
+1 on the training bible. I have the Triathlon one but the cycling one's not that much different. Full of good stuff in there.

In God we trust, all others bring data.

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.
Specificity, specificity, specificity.
The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".
