Question for Experienced Racers (Triatheletes/Half Marathoners)

Can I do a Sprint Triathalon and six days later do a Half Marathon?

 

I have been running for almost 2 years.  I completed my first half marathon in Philly this November (yeah!) and have my sights on a sprint marathon in May.  But I would really like to do the Oddesy Half Marathon which is only a six days later than the sprint.  I am currently maintaining 10-15 mpw but in January I will start training for a The Hollywood Half Marathon on April 7th so my weekly mileage will be ramping up.  However, I've never trained for a tri before and I'm not sure how hard it will be.  I am a strong swimmer and the running part is no problem.  Haven't been on a bike in over 30 years - should be fun

 

Are these races too close together?  Do I have to choose just one? 

 

Any and all advice is welcome.  Thanks!
