Recreation (Rec) time Intro.

Continuing from January 22, 2011

  If it is one of the designated recreation days for our unit the swamper comes around to make a list of the inmates who want to attend "Rec."  Unit 7 has Rec Monday through Thursday and on Saturday.  Monday, Wednesday and Saturday the Rec is held upstairs in the big gym.  I can play basketball, volleyball or lift weights if I like.  So far I have stuck to lifting weights every chance I can get.  It's too bad there is nearly 150 inmates at Rec at the same time when we're upstairs.  That's 150 inmates, 1 basketball court, 1 volleyball court and maybe 15 different exercise stations.  Can we say crowded?  Tuesdays and Thursdays we have Rec downstairs, but only our unit is down there and not everyone goes.  Downstairs you can only lift weights, but for maybe the 20 inmates attending there are nearly 25 different stations to lift at.  It's much more comfortable.  Rec only lasts for 50 minutes at either location.
