Up 2.8 and a Duathlon?

So up 2.8 lbs. and not all that surprised.  I will qualify the weigh in a bit as I made the switch from gym shorts to jeans for the winter.  I was also in a long sleeve T rather than short.  Not that it made up the entire 2.8 but it might have made up a bit. 

Tonight I plan on getting in my run.  Well plan is not the word as much as I must.  if I have to go to a lighted park to do it I will.  I have to run a bit in the elements and get my endurance up a bit.

The question I eluded to is this.

Would you tackle a Duathlon (run / bike) in April if you ran your first 5k in October?

They have 2 courses a one where you run 3 miles and bike 7 and another where you run 5 miles and bike 15.

The first question as I stated above -
Would you do it?
and then
Which one would you do?

You can totally do a duathlon by April! Well, I would do it if I was you. And since you have already done a 5k, you could probably do the 3 mile run/7 mile bike race pretty easily. If you wanted a challenge you could try for the other. Either way, you should go for it!

You won't have any problem at all. I plan on the same next yr. Just make sure that you do both back to back every once in a while so that you know what you are getting into...At least that's what I plan on doing.
