Your lungs will be there, but your legs will not. You need to spend some time in the weight room building some muscle mass in your legs and getting those fast-twitch fibers firing.

Cycling is a very isometric activity compared to running. Train to be a strong cyclist and your running will suffer. Or, just be content sucking at both like me.
