    For me personally it would be

    Monday - short run (2-3 miles) and Crossfit
    Tuesday - 5-7 mile run
    Wednesday - Crossfit and bike 10-20 miles
    Thursday - short run (2-3 miles) and Crossfit
    Friday - rest
    Saturday - long run (10+ miles)
    Sunday - bike 20-25 miles

    My perfect week would probably make most people run screaming!  LOL

    But for you, here's an idea:

    Monday- cardio and strength, shoulders, abs, quads, hamstrings

    Tuesday- cardio (something different than Monday, and longer)

    Wednesday- cardio and strength- triceps, biceps, glutes, calves

    Thursday- cardio (again, something different) and yoga/stretching (should be stretching every day, ideally)

    Friday- cardio and strength- back, abs/core, full-body moves

    Saturday- cardio

    Sunday- stretching, walking (active rest day)

    Rest is important!

    This is about what my weeks looked like awhile ago.  Now most of my strength moves are more functional than isolating, and I'm marathon training and cross training now, so my schedule looks way different.

    This is my schedule this week:

    Sunday-Rest

    Monday- 5 miles, 30 Body Pump

    Tuesday- Pure Cardio, Cardio abs, Hard core abs-  4 mile run

    Wednesday- Pump and Shred, Softball game- 4 mile run

    Thurs- Cardio recover, Flow, Hard core abs

    Friday- Cardio power and resistance.

    Saturday- 10-12 mile run.

    I'm not sure I can fit in all of my miles, but I really hope so.

    My week goes like this:

    Monday- piyo-50 min  then zumba 1 hour

    Tuesday- zumba- 1 hour and maybe a belly dance DVD at home (OR if I skip zumba-I'll do strength and BD video or walk on the treadmill) 

    Wednesday- Zumba twice = 2 hours

    Thursday- pilates-45 min then zumba-1 hour

    Friday -zumba 1 hour

    Saturday -zumba twice= 2 hours

     Sunday...rest

    Here's mine:
    Monday: spinning

    Tuesday: hiit...strength training with sprints thrown in every few minutes. (The running portion ends up being 2 miles) Also planks.

    Wednesday: rest day

    Thursday: hiit...strength training with short running intervals thrown in. Not quite sprints, but faster than my normal running pace. (Again, 2 miles) Also planks.

    Friday: 6+ mile run

    Saturday: strength class

    Sunday: 10+ mile run

    Well I'll post my current routine, but I don't think there is a "perfect" routine out there. It depends on your goals and interests.  I'm doing an ABA routine right now so I'll post 2 weeks.  I do hanging leg raises when I feel like it but since I'm doing compound lifts I don't see ab work as terribly efficient or necessary :) 

    I go hiking or for walks on the weekends when the weather cooperates :)

    A - Squat, bench press, push ups, rows
    B - Dead lift, shoulder press, assisted pull ups

    Monday - A
    Tuesday - cardio
    Wednesday - B
    Thursday - cardio
    Friday
    - A

    Monday- B
    Tuesday - cardio
    Wednesday
    - A
    Thursday -cardio
    Friday
    - B

    I do upper body and abs on Mondays and Thursdays, plus cardio of some sort (Monday is an hour long Body Combat and Thursdays are usually Zumba). Tuesdays and Fridays are lower body, abs, and cardio (Tuesdays are elliptical days and Fridays are another body combat class). Wednesdays and Saturdays are swing days for me (if I miss a day earlier in the week, I'll make it up on those days or take the day off if I need to). Sundays are usually yoga or off days. That schedule works for me, but it's taken me a while to come up with something I actually enjoy and stick to.
