How should I Get 'Er Done?

So, I'm wondering as I try to feather together my running buildup plan, the lovely Lydiard program (week 1 on the 70-mile plan..I SO fell off the wagon), with the beginning of my IM training plan.....

I need to cycle AND run tomorrow....40 miles on the bike and a 5 mile run.

I should just brick and get it all over with in one fell swoop, right?

Or should I ride in the morning and run in the afternoon....

What to do? What to do??

Suggestions? Votes?

Brick! It's more convenient, and you can shower just once.

I doubt you fell off so bad that you must return to week 1!!!

What does your coach say?

Specificity says do it as ride then run off the bike.

Logistics/time-management/practicality/safety might say do the run while it's too dark to be out riding on the streets, finish the run at 7:30-8am when it's then light enough to ride.
