Training/nutrition with less than 2 weeks to race

Have only two weeks before 26 mile bike ride and due to teammate injury, may have to do his part of a 1 mile swim. Just found out about swim but have been working hard on bike and I always swim some for xtraining/variety.

Any tips on training and or nutrition? I know Iíve been overtraining to this point (no rest days) and I find tapering difficult. However hereís what Iím planning:

Mon - swim 0.5 mile (done)

Tues - run 2 miles; fast pace

Wed - bike 13 miles; intervals

Thu - swim .75 miles

Fri - run sprints

Sat - rest

Sun - swim 1 mile

Mon - swim 0.5, bike 25 miles

Tues - rest

Wed - bike 13 miles; intervals

Thurs - rest or 30 min spin on stat bike, low intensity?

Fri - 30 min spin on stat bike, low intensity

Race day

Nutrition- lost bunch of weight by cutting almost all carbs and sugar but sometimes I overdo it to the point of headaches from what I suspect is low blood sugar.

Bkfast - 2 eggs, 1 sausage patty, 1 waffle

Lunch - can of veg, chicken breast, rice

Dinner - similar to lunch

Is this a reasonable plan? The last minute addition of swim leg of the triathlon is a bit of a bummer but I have done some pool work this year and am a decent swimmer. Hate that Iím using that energy as I wanted to fly on the bike but it is what it is. Thanks in advance for any tips/input.
