On saturday I do some running for 30 minutes with a heart rate of 70 - 80% MHR.

Is that a good training plan?

My first objective is to loose wheight and the second one is to play a better tennis.

Any advise?
IMHO - that's a pretty good. You're active 6 days a week and get to play tennis at least three of those days. Wish I could say the same, but grad school take priority.

Just a thought, do you do any other workout after your 30 minute tennis lessons? Even in a private lesson, 30 minutes seems kind of short. Just a thought, combine those three lessons into one 1.0 hour - 1.5 hour lesson, then either exercise or play a full match on the other days. A healthy 31 year old could probably use more than 30 mins of exercise each day.
