    No.

    1) need to mix it upon a daily, not a weekly basis
    2) swiming doesn't do jack for your run
    3) Here is a simple suggestion for three days a week:
    Day 1 - Run for 30 minutes at a moderate pace
    Day 2 - Run Moderatly Hard for 5 minutes, take two minutes to jog easy and recover. Do this four times.
    Day 3 - Run really easy for 1 hour

    Try that for a month and get back to us.

    That is a whole lot of running. I would think you would have knee pains and issues rather than benefit from this.

    I'd go with a mix of running and high intensisty biking(Like a spinning class). Do a long distance run once per week(6+ miles)


    And always time your self!!!
