testing/competition-rest question

I could not think of how to word this question in the search engine: "how much rest before a competition/pft"....so if anyone can throw me in the right direction or feels like starting a new thread, that would be super

2-3 days. If you are highly trained then you can taper for upwards of a week but this is generally only used in super long events by elite athletes, think Ironman Triathlon.
