Training for half & sprint tri?

Last year I did two sprint tris.  I would like to do two more this year again - April and probably July.  I followed a beginner sprint tri training program.

 

I'm thinking about a half marathon in September or November.


How do I train for both a tri and a half marathon?  Since the tris will be done before the half marathon, should I stop swimming and biking?  I really do like the variety that those workouts give me or is there a way to integrate those into half marathon training?


Should I be looking into an Olympic distance tri this year instead of sprints to increase the running for the half?  Or should I be looking into Beginner 10k training plans, then once I can do that, then do a Beginner Half training plan?

 

Thanks.
