How much would cycling help your running?

If I ran 3 times a week... and cycled twice obv this would help my fitness but what about my running? My running isn't that good to begin with, i'm only a beginner... Just thinking that cycling will keep me motivated - adding some variation!

On a similar theme. I'm currently marathon training for a December marathon. The training is going well, doing a couple of 7 mile runs during the the week, an 11 mile run and a 15 mile run at the moment but I want to start cycling to work which is a 12 mile cycle each way. Would this be too much? I don't necessarily want to increase my fitness, just avoid the expense and aggro of trains and tubes without reducing my running.

I don't believe that cycling will adversley affect your running, in fact it is probalaby a good thing - working the opposing muscles to running. I am prepared to be correct if I am wrong though.

Every so often I get it into my head to get a bike but then I think about how much it'll hurt when I fall off and how much of a prat I'll look wobbling down the road!! Can just see the kids in my road loving that sight!

When I first got my bike I was wobbling all over the place. My workmate who I was with at the time still gives me stick about it. As long as I'm able to do both without having to reduce my running (at least until I get over this silly marathon phase I'm going through)
