cardio non training days


this is my current situation, bulking. started 1st april 2007 at 12st 6lbs now 13st 5lbs, age 26 height 5ft 10.

i still would like to bulk upto 14st before i start my cut. Recently what ive noticed is the following...
im pleased with upper body progress, i believe ive still maintained good definition on chest and shoulders.
Stomach is still flat but i seem to be putting weight on my hips, which is making my upperbody look smaller than it is ( if you know what i mean).

ive just started ( 4days ago) doing A.m cardio on empty for 30mins.

what i would like to know if it is ok to do Cardio on non training days ( i weight train mon, wed, fri ) thinking of doing some running at about 7pm on non training days... is this advised when bulking. my worry is as im 10lbs away from my target weight it might continue going on my hips. Any suggestions

    So would the run basically fit in where the training is, in the above? ? ?

    What sort of run would it be? ? ?

    Duration, intensity, etc...? ? ?

    the run would be ie if i weight train on monday, i will do a 1 mile run on tuesday evening. im not planning on doing running on training days.
    it will be medium intensity, duration as long as it takes me to run a mile

    what do you think?

    whats my diet looking like?
