    Hi folks – I have raced an Olympic 2 and 3 weeks out before 70.3s in the last 2 years as a tune up. Is the weekend before too close for an actual race?

    The 70.3 the following weekend is a B race as a fill between another 70.3 and a marathon later in the year.

    HI M,
    My initial thought is yes – but as your 70.3 is a b race, then the risk associated with racing an Olympic the weekend before aren’t as high in terms of how that race could impact your fatigue and hence performance in that 70.3. I would say that racing is more stressful than training and does often require longer recovery so that is something to consider when planning your race calendar.
