Terrain wise it should be pretty eay, but so many other thing can happen, wind directionm heat, humidity, how late the party the night before went, how much dancing in the streets, how much sleep you got, how you ate yesterday for todays ride, and what and where foor/drink are available during the day, and were you pushing big gears or spinning?
I would try to get at least 1000 before the ride.Like you said, more is almost always better. Make a few of those rides back to back days starting off 30 -40 and working up 50-60 or more.
day 5 Baxter to Grinnell is the stretch later in the week with no towns later in the day that might challenge some people not because it a hard hilly section, just that time of the day and week.
