I'm sure u guys r just kidding right? Cause a full taxi test involves a lot more than just moving the plane and braking! There are 100 different checks that need to be done including steering checks, engine spools, shut downs, flaps , mechanical and fluid test, vibration at slow speed, check brakes for abnormal wear and so forth.

Before you posted this that was exactly what I thought. Just speed up and then hit the brakes.:D

nothing strange or special with C919 doing taxiing test for a few days. Think about Y-20 and J-20, how many days did we see them doing the same thing on the tarmac? For J-20, if I remember correctly, at least two days or maybe three.
