I currently cycle quite a lot including regular 30 mile daily commutes on the bike when I can.
I’ve taken up running recently and I’m trying to figure out the best way to combine both running and cycle training.

I’ve no specific goals in mind for running but would like to get my 5k time down a bit from my current 25 minute pb and also like the idea of building up to some longer 10 mile or possibly even half marathons if I can.
I’m not regularly racing the bike this year but I do plan on entering one endurance event at the back end of the year.

Any advice for the best way to combine the two or to avoid killing myself by overdoing it?

Hello. Have you tried the Basic triathlon questions thread - someone there should know. Or a triathlon training plan minus the swimming. Do you have a friendly local tri club? Our coaches love talking to people and are good for advice!
