Default 7 Day Pre race training

As I approach my first test of the season (British Gas Great London Swim 26 May) I am keen to show some improvement on last year and wonder what good advice is on the forum for the last 7 days.

I am thinking

Saturday - The Race
Friday - short light session equivalent to spinning in cycling just to loosen up muscles after day off
Thursday - rest day
Wednesday - Long and fast
Tuesday - Practise race pace without TT in short intervals
Monday - Race rehearsal 1 mile but with TT and SPL target.
Sunday - Open water practise focus on navigation.

I do not really know how smart this is though so advice appreciated.
