Hi MM

It's impossible to grade a plan. What is it for? Are you trying to maintain or get fit? I know you said you're happy, but what is the objective of the training plan? When you say "all I can get", what does that actually mean to you?

Just generally, your plan is quite low on cardio work, but that's not crucial if you're only interested in toning and keeping a base level of fitness. If you wanted to get fitter or lose body fat, then I'd advise more cardio in the training.

Other than that, your programme seems fine, but that's generic advice, unfortunately.

Looks good MM. 5 days a week is good frequency too.

Just one suggestion. I' d go for another resistance training session during the week. Perhaps on a Wednesday.

What weight training do you do for middel (?) and lower body?
