It was pretty cold in the morning, temperature was in the 50’s. But as I started walking my body warmed up and I had to take off my shirt. As the sun rose over the Sierras I was warmed up. the rabbits were out in droves, feasting on the fresh grass. Usually, when I start walking I am the only one maybe a couple more inmates might join me early, but as the sun rose more inmates joined us. It was nice walk and refreshing, it woke me up. After the walk, dried up and changed my T-shirt and stretched and Yoga at the basketball court at 8:20 AM. Finished Yoga at 9:45 AM. It was a strenuous practice.
