That is a decent time, well done. I usually do a comfortable 5min/km jog so my time is typically around 48 to 50 mins. I don't want to push myself while running because of the greater potential of sustaining injury that would prevent me from riding my bike.

Cycling will make your running better.

I was an OK distance and CC runner at school, did the district carnivals. I had a regular hilly ~14 km run, which for years I did in 1h07, 1h08, etc. Consistent times but could never get much faster.

Then I started bike racing, got to a reasonable standard (club A Grade, open B Grade), and one day I decided to do the run again. Did it in 55 minutes, on no running training at all. I reckon bike training makes you fit for all general purposes.

I signed up for a half marathon a couple of weeks ago, so I've been doing a bit of running to train for it, I can handle the cardio aspect pretty easily because of the riding I do, but my calves are getting pretty punished. Running up a few flights of stairs then trying to keep going on the flat nails me pretty hard too :/

Still got a fortnight or so to train before the big day though :)

40 mins seems like a very solid 10k time though, I'm hoping for about 2hrs for the half.

You will do that easily. Most fit people will easily do 5min/km. Run at your own pace and run to run another day.
