The 1st time I ran, the next day, my whole body hurt, not just my legs, even though they did hurt the worse. Walking and stretching helped a lot. Your body will adjust. The next running day, I wasn't really sore at all the next day.

When you run you are incorporating a lot more muscles than when you walk. Anytime you try a new exercise it's going to hurt. Just stretch afterwards!

Riding a bike is awesome for fitness, but because it is low impact, it is not really a great preparation for running.

However, most experts recommend rookie runners (ie. less than 6 months running experience) stick to running just 3 days per week to allow recovery from the impact. Riding a bike on your non-running days can be a great way to continue to build your fitness, while still allowing your legs sufficient recovery.

Yes, the impact of running is hard on the body, and it takes a while for your body to adapt.

You should build up a solid base (2-3 months) of walking first. And a Couch to 5K program is definitely the best way to get into running - these plans work on progressively increasing intervals and running and walking, and gradually ramp up the impact in such a way that your leg muscles and tendons can adapt to it.
