Welcome, Eric. 

I've never done an HIM but have had training volume to prepare for it.  There are two main differences between sprint/OLY and HIM/IM plans:  the long ride (3+ hours) and the long run (1.5+ hours) in HIM/IM plans, and the intensity training for sprints and Olys, which you could argue most people don't need for the longer distances.  That said, my last Oly plan had me peak at 25 miles per week running, which is darn near HIM territory, though I never went past 8 miles.  I think I was hitting over 11 hours/week training, with doubles darn near every day for about two months or so. 

Sounds like you have a great setup where you could get something done in the morning before everyone gets up, and then something quick at lunch, and your family won't be impacted.  My pool was five minutes away plus we have a treadmill and a bike trainer so I didn't spend a lot of additional time commuting to training.  That's the big time suck for a lot of people.

Feel free to browse my training logs from like May - September 2013 for a sprint focus, and then Jan - May 2014 for an Oly race.

Happy Thanksgiving (U.S.) everyone!  My daughter had a special swim practice this morning at 6 AM (!!!) so I swam with them.  Well, not really WITH them, just in the same pool.  Got in about an hour, my longest swim workout in over a year.
