Tuesday of next week is a couple of things.  It is the first Tuesday of July and the 4th July (aka Independence Day).  Many of you will not be working (including Dr. J from Performance Wellness, which means he will NOT be at the workout).  Your aches/pains will have to wait until the first Tuesday of August or you could <gasp> schedule an office visit (just don’t try to schedule it for Tuesday, July 4th)!

In case it is at all unclear the workout that falls on Tuesday, July 4th, will go on as scheduled.

The Workout – ladder
Fun Group = 400, 800, 1600
Fast Group = 400, 800, 1200, 1600
