    As long as there is no thunder and lightening, we will be meeting tonight. Tonight will be mainly an overview of the program. Because of the high heat, we will adjust the workout accordingly and will be taking it very slow. If you can't make tonight, we will have all of the training info at Sat's workout and the other workouts following that. Cheers and stay hydrated!
