For training I would use the same bike as for the actual race. That way you know you have dialed in all fitting and are comfortable with it.

Some people use training bikes, but that is more for the reason to "save" the expensive drivetrain and other components. That training bike being cheaper, often means it is heavier and less aero. So there is more training effect. So if you need or want a separate bike for training, it should be a "harder to ride" type.

Obviously there always is a reason for N+1. So buy whatever you think makes you happy.
