Yes she does drive a lot. So my question to you is what type of driving does she do with the car? Does she do a lot of highway long distance driving for long periods of time or is it a lot of slow speed stop and go driving with a lot of short trips thrown in there?
If it is a lot of highway long distance driving then stretching out a couple thousand kms and/or an extra 2 weeks is no biggie, if she does a lot of short trips with constant start and restarts during her drives to appointments and stuff then stick with your current schedule.
The idea is to try and get the car up to operating temperature and allow it to run at those temps for long periods of time so any impurities and moisture in the oil can be burnt and allows the oil to properly lubricate all major engine components. Driving short trips and not letting the car warm up develops moisture in the oil and will cause accelerated wear of those major components.
