I don't think more than a couple of PT's is necessarily required if a lot of timed sections were done.
Full PTs help with stamina.
Doing a lot of timed sections doesn't prep you for doing five timed sections with a small break in the middle.
I did 3 PT's the week before (that was all), but did a lot of timed sections and didn't feel slightly fatigued.
Now I'm not expecting a 170, but that's to do with LG, and not endurance.
The 15 minute break makes it feel like the first 3 sections didn't happen.
I probably have above average endurance for this kind of thing though.
For me once the sections individually weren't tiring, 5 together weren't.
