I appreciate your couch to 5K post. I run 5K every morning, more on weekends. If it's practical, keep your runs on a morning schedule, the science seems to say you'll benefit more by doing so, From experience, I agree. Also, those Vibram Five Fingers? - you might re-think your footwear. If you are trail running in soft stuff ..fine, but if you are mixing it with asphalt I might suggest your seek out some decent padding, even if you prefer that low 4mm or less drop, as I do. I rotate through 3 different shoe designs depending on the terrain, and also to give the key impact points some rest/variety. Your legs and feet should never hurt when you come home, unless you are tempting marathon distances... or sprinting.
If you run regularly I think you'll find your bike hill climbing adventures will get much easier, faster.
Good luck on your journey.
