OK, here's mine - I'm starting a new program this week so times/distances aren't down yet...
Mon - Short swim, short bike, all over ST Tues - Climb Wed - Medium swim (am), short run, light squash Thurs - Long swim, lower half ST Fri - Long Bike, top half ST Sat - OFF Sun - Long run (or squash or X-country skiing)

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise. -P.Z. Pearce
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.

Maybe I will walk or run or iceskate or whatever
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

My current routine (from my recent post about strength training):
Sunday: Off Monday: Run - Shoulders Tuesday: Run Wednesday: Back/Biceps Thursday: Run Friday: Cross-train (elliptical or treadmill at 4.0-4.5 mph on 4.0 incline) - Chest/Tricep Saturday: Long run for the week
I need to add some leg and ab strength training too.

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?
