    Hello,
    I am a 183cm guy who weighs around 88 kg. During winter I usually run a bit (3 times a week of 6-7 km runs). But its been difficult for me to run during summer, since I play a lot of tennis.

    Does anyone have any good tips or running schedules? I almost play tennis everyday and sometimes two times a day.

    Last week my schedule was:

    Tuesday: 1 hour tennis traning (morning)
    Wednesday: 1 hour tennis training (morning) and 1 hour tennis training in the afternoon
    Thursday: Tennis training 2 hours
    Friday: Tennis training 2 hours
    Saturday: Tennis match 2 hours
    Sunday: Tennis training 3 hours

    I wanna avoid injuries, so I am unsure if doing more workout would be overkill?

    Any input?

    I can only run on days I don't play tennis. So I run often in the winter, and not so often in the summer.

    I just always put my running and lifting after my tennis. Also I do a lot of my general cardio on the eliptical to save my knees.

    you can add a 15 min run before your Tennis, gets you warmed up and better than nothing.
