Next Workout on Monday

Reason is, the gym is closed on Saturday for the Sabbath and then Sunday I'll be fasting to mark Tisha B'Av, the ninth day of the month of Av.

Tisha B'Av is a day of mourning for the destruction of the First Temple (by the Babylonians in 586 BCE) and Second Temple (by the Romans in 70 CE). It is a fast day - there is no eating or drinking. People do not greet each other, and we read Eicha, the Book of Lamentations.

Over at the Kesher Talk blog they will be having a blogburst to mark the day, which promises to be excellent reading.
