    Monday - weights (full body routine with 2 lifts per major group: legs, chest, shoulders, back)
    Tuesday - cardio intervals and abs
    Wednesday - weights (full body as well with different lifts than Monday)
    Thursday - cardio intervals and arms
    Friday - weights (full body - see Wednesday and Monday)

    Some weeks I will skip the full body weight routine and do pairs like legs/chest, back/shoulders, but I always do weights Mon/Wed/Fri.

    I also stay active on the weekends doing stuff around the house and yard work.

    eta for spelling

    I was just getting back into the swing of things after my usual winter hiatus (not completely, but exercise is much more erratic in the winter for me)...but I royally jacked my left knee up ice skating with my kids so I don't know when I'll be back at it.

    Monday - weights
    Tuesday - 8-10 mile ride
    Wednesday - 8-10 mile ride
    Thursday - weights
    Friday - Rest day
    Saturday - 12-15 mile ride
    Sunday - 12-15 mile ride (or sometimes a longer 20-25 mile ride)

    I try to get in 40-50 miles per week which isn't nearly as much as I used to do, but this fits my schedule and other life goings on better. Sometimes I might sub a ride with a hike or rock climbing or something.

    I follow an upper lower split program for strength training, it's a mix of weights and calisthenics. I also try and get 1-2 cardio days in there and 1-2 days of yoga. I do these on strength days or rest days, whatever happens to work with my schedule. I make sure to have at least one day of complete rest per week.
    M- upper
    T- lower
    W- rest
    T- upper
    F- lower
    S- rest
    S- rest or extra lower day

    I do something every day of the week, I've built up to this and dial intensity back as necessary as well as having a full 24 hours rest from sat morning to Sunday morning.

    Sunday : long run (up to 17miles so far but marathon training)
    Monday : PT - this is now deep stretching
    3.1mile recovery run, shoulders/arms, tabata and barbell classes.
    Tuesday: 3.1mile run, stair workout with PT, zumba, insanity and boxercise classes
    Wednesday: 30min sprint training with PT, either mid length easy (half pace) run, or 3.1miles tempo on treadmill, abfocused workout, zumba class
    Thursday: 30min hill intervals (either outside or on treadmill), chest/back, 30min PT (this varies week to week), circuits class
    Friday: 1.5-3.1 mile run (depending how I feel), tabata and total body conditioning classes, 30min PT (again varies depending on what else we've done in PT and classes)
    Saturday : 3.1 mile run to bootcamp and bootcamp (finished by 10.30 then I don't do anything until 10.30 Sunday when I do my long run

    Eta : I'm training for 2 marathons 2 weeks apart, so need to be used to running while tired
