I just received this message which is pretty ancient, sorry for the delay of this long. But the mail was never delivered. I have been out of the SHU for years now. But I'm still exercising daily. In the SHU at Pelican Bay, I had all day to work out. I had nothing else to do.

Exercise is a good means to deal with stress, and I'd advise it to everyone. I'm 67 years old and I can still do anything like I was doing twenty years ago. My routines have had to change because now I'm on a mainline. I go to school and I'm learning vocational skills. I finished small engines, and now I'm taking office services - computer courses. And I have been studying the law for a long time, in fact I just graduated from paralegal studies so I'm now a certified paralegal. I utilize my education to help other inmates with their legal problems. I've been staying out of trouble. I have three years clean. I just went to the board and got denied 5 years. So I have to continue to strive to better myself and become a productive individual. I still exercise dails. Every day. One morning, I'll do arms/curls- back arms and pushups-situps. But I warm up with jumping jacks and other calisthenics first. The next morning I'll do my warmup and then I'll do burpees. If I have extra time, I'll do a seconde workout after dinner because of this covid virus, things have changed for everyone, but for us in prison, it's really tightened up. Very little yard and program, so I spend a lot of time in my cell studying, watching TV, and I have a tablet now that I can text folks, I can listen to music, play games on it. I like to play chess and music helps me relax and reminisce of the old days. Old friends and love, my family, kids/. I'm sorry for being so late in responding but it's the mail, not me.
