Would it be a neutral or a bad idea?
I'm signed up for Pacific Crest HIM on June 23rd, 2007. Two weeks later there's a HIM in my barrio up in Everett - Lake Stevens 70.3.
PC HIM will be my first HIM. I know it takes about a month to recover from a full IM. Some people have been known to do full IM's 2-4 weeks apart and actually do better at the second race. I've done a two half marathons three weeks apart and actually did better in the second one. This is a bit different though. The second one would be nearby race for fun. PC HIM is my A race. I do know that I'll have to watch out for injury and take super good care of my muscles, ligaments, and mental game if I were to do it.
How long does it take to recover from a HIM? Has anyone done this before?
