This was posted elswhere and I thought I would bring it up here as this guy is undecided on what to do. His focus is HIM's and then IMWA2008.
P.S I'm fluro
"I did Port in April but will not do IM again before Busso next year.
I run like a dog (Daschound, not Greyhound). 4.31 run split at Port incl. T2. Passed in the last 5km by that Nuked character who looked fresh as a daisy!
Should I do the Sydney Marathon in September to foucs on my running, or should I focus on the HIM's this season (ie 6 weeks later)??? I have currently worked up to 6 and a half hours low intensity running a week under amateur coach-spiritual advisor Fluro. He is in the don't do a marathon camp, but suggested I ask the question on here.
Basically, does a stand-alone marathon benefit your IM marathon or is there more benefit in dropping my HIM times by learning to run better off the bike.
P.S. I also fear the pain"
