If its your first year, 19 weeks should be doable. It can depend on how hard you go after both races. You will know after AZ how your body handled it, and have plenty of time to recover.
Stay active after AZ, don't let yourself get stiff with too much rest. You will have to push ourself at times and be ready to deal with pain. It won't be easy, especially the first time you try.

THe next year I did one IM early in the season and lots of HIMs after that.
The next year (this season) I did 2 IMs 9 weeks apart with a HIM and a HIM distance aquabike + 6.2 M run sandwitched in between. No problem with doing both IMs.
guess what I am saying is ya you can do it - but why bite off so much the first year when you don't even know how your body will react to the IM?
