I've only done one, the Granite Bay Duathlon in Folsom, earlier this year. I think it was a 4mi/18mi/4mi, but I'll have to go check my t-shirt drawer. It seemed a lot harder than a tri. I think it's because you don't have a chance to save your legs in the first portion. You run hard, hit the bike and spin hard, then OMG! you're running hard again.
Also, my HR gets up and stays up higher when I run so I was up near LT pretty much the entire time. I was wiped by the end.
