CARDIO
Sunday - long walk or run
Monday - off
Tuesday - short run
Wednesday - off or short run or cross train
Thursday - Irish dance class 1 hr
Friday - usually off, but I do something if I can
Saturday - run

STRENGTH (this is a new one I'm trying on a 5 day rotation M-F, but I have to play with it a bit to fit my schedule each week)
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday
do legs one day, then core, then upper body and keep rotating through the three workouts over 4 days each week.

The key for me is being flexible and knowing my plan but looking at the calendar each week to ensure I can actually do it and make any changes I need to in advance, so I don't feel like I'm messing up if I miss a day due to having a busy night.

Monday-Uppers- Arms Back Etc- 40 minutes on treadmill
Tues- Lowers- Legs Abs and lower back- 40 minutes on treadmill
Wednesday- Running on Treadmill-Interval training...
Thursday-Uppers-40- minutes on treadmill
Friday-Lowers-40 minutes on treadmill
Saturday- 60-90 Minutes on Treadmill- Outside run in the summer time.
Sunday Off.

This is the schedule I try to stick to...however, due to the snow storm last week I was only able to squish in 3 weight training days.

Go with whatever you can fit into your schedule...
Many shorter workouts are better than one or two long work outs a week. Good luck and best wishes emoticon

I've just started to settle back into a routine now that all the crazy holidays are over.

M: Run outside with pup at lunch.
T: Walk at lunch. Gym after work with buddy, 45m cardio (running, rowing, and/or elliptical), 15m weights, 1hr yoga.
W: Run outside w/ pup at lunch.
Th: Walk at lunch. Gym routine again.
F: Run outside w/ pup at lunch.

Of course I'm going on a business trip next week, so who knows what'll happen then! :)

I am attempting to get into a regular rutine during the week. My work schedule is calming down a bit, so I have a little more regularity in my life. So, the question I have is, what is your typical workout schedule for one week. When and what do you do?
