Doing laps

Today I got a second try in my manual wheelchair, and rolled down to the dining room and back. The picture gives an idea of how far it is. With the encouragement, or should I say prodding, of fellow resident Bill, I decided to try a second lap. With his help engaging one of my brakes, I was able to turn the chair around at each end . After that, I was on a roll. I went for a third lap, and it was the best one yet. Perhaps my pushing technique improved slightly, or else my muscles were warming up. To put the icing on the cake, I managed to push my way over the door threshold into my room. First time ever!
