    I have done some sprint/olympic tris and am training for my first ever 70.3 following an 80/20 intermediate plan.

    I have the opportunity to sign up for an olympic tri taking place about three weeks before my 70.3. I would use this as a replacement for my long run and long bike ride that weekend.

    Would this be a good opportunity to test my race day plan or is the risk of injury/overtraining too great?

    That’s very doable. You’ll just need to ease back on your training afterward for a couple of days for recovery. Good luck!
