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 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"
