I typically run 30-40 minutes twice a week.
As you all know, there are cycling shoes that work or don't work for your feet. This is the same with running shoes. Don't go to a big box sports store and buy whatever they have on sale, it can be the wrong type of shoe and can cause injury.
Go to a running specific store where the employees are runners themselves and talk to them about your history and goals. The store I went to, they watched me walk, sized me and then pulled out several models. Then I wore two different shoes, went for a short jog, switched out one shoe, jogged, until I found the shoe that was most comfortable.
Run-ups are great places to make up distance. Also you may live in an area where there isn't much running but the winter is very unpredictable and you may have to do lots of running at your state champs or nats.
