@Treefox - Winter season for us also. Fortunately we have two Duathlon series here in Melbourne. One is via our State Tri association, the second series is run by one of the local clubs.

Not really any particular program. I've just cut out the swim training (was 4 swims, 4 rides and 4 runs) and included an one additional session for the bike and run.
Training sessions vary between over distance, tempo, intervals, hill repeats, fartlek with regular brick sessions thrown in for good measure.
Only additional change from a regular tri program is to also have run - ride - run bricks. I find a useful session to include especially if the weather is poor is to have the bike set up on the trainer and run 2km, ride 20 minutes, run 2km, ride 20 minutes, run 2km, ride 20 minutes and finally run 2 km.
End up with 8km's running and an hour on the trainer...
