I've done this several times. I've noticed that some of my highest scores have occurred the day after I've done 2 tests in a day. I'm actually considering saving 59 and 60 for Friday because of this. I am wary of burnout though.
I tend to think burnout is overrated. I do believe that lots of people experience it, but I don't think it's the answer to everything. I'm made the most improvements from just doing LSAT-study every single day. If I skip a day of LR, I invariably miss a question or two more per section from not having been in the mindset and missing a single word/qualifier. I score better consistently when I study every single day with no (day-long) break.
I'm taking a test on Wednesday and doing my last one Friday. No way in hell I'll be relaxing the day before. I think we underestimate that some people learn differently--and for me doing great is a matter of being in the mindset constantly and consistently. Plus, I don't really get exhausted from studying or anything like that.
I think we're in the same boat. I've never experienced burnout and I tend to feel sharpest when I consistently push myself without breaks. It's hard to ignore the burnout horror stories though.
