      I’ve concluded the Masters Build, Peak & Race program with the 1/2 Growler on 5/24 and starting the Masters 50-mile MTB personal best next Monday to conclude with Dakota 5-0 on 9/6. I have a 4-hour marathon mtb race this Saturday. It’s a B or C level local race that I’d like to do well, but obviously no killing myself to do so…..but it’s still going to be hard. I have not had a performance test for some time and I see the plan calls for one Tuesday.

      Is it wise to do a performance test 2 days after the race or should I push it back?

      Testing 2 days after a race is a waste of time and effort.

      Do it this week on the Tuesday BEFORE your race then next week take a day off instead of testing.
