Bad to take a PT tomorrow?

Postby ag912 » Fri Sep 30, 2011 3:47 am

In the last three days my pt scores have been a 169, a 173, and a 172. I'm feeling like I'm on a good trend right now and I want to keep practicing , would taking a test tomorrow be a bad idea?

It's a day of relaxation today. You're not going to pick up any amazing new tricks. You're not going to have a breakthrough. If anything, you'll add a little to the good trend (but you're already in a pretty good place), or you'll completely destroy your confidence if something goes wrong. No reason to possibly go through that for the minor benefits that a PT today would have.

Might I recommend a massage?

im taking one today, only because it will give me a little peace of mind. i have only taken one this week, (163, 2 pts below my target), so i think i will benefit. granted, i have prepared a lot less than the majority of people on this forum.

Don't do it. Take whatever nervous energy is compelling you to do another PT and bottle up. When the clock starts on your first section tomorrow, use that energy to get off to a strong, fast start and then let yourself fall into a comfortable pace.

Also, this:

And it's just not worth it. Keep your mind busy with something totally unrelated.
