Brick TT workouts?

When doing a bike/run TT, how important is it that the race-pace run follow
immediately the hard bike section?  My stretch of path for a 10-mile bike
TT is a 35-minute ride away from my door, and I've been riding easy back
before running--does this defeat the purpose of a brick?

thanks for your comments...

(incidentally, this could start another Chicago thread--the 10 miles are on
the lakefront path, south of McCormick Place... great for the purpose, but
I live on the north side)

  Bricks have helped me get used to running hard after biking hard.  An easy
ride home will not simulate how you will feel in a race situation.

I normally do the opposite: easy spin on the way out and then TT pushing
*** the way back right before the run. Then my run i start easy for 3/5'
before pushing to race pace. The only difference for me: i normally keep the
race pace in the run for half of the estimate run time in the race and then
i ease off.
