I’ve officially had the Jive for three months now.
And I’m pleased ro report that I didn’t come anywhere near falling out of my chair in month three so that’s an improvement on the previous two months. I did freak people out on two occasions but I think that’s always going to be the case with this chair because of how the spider-trac suspension works – when i go up a steep ramp it shoves me really down onto my back castors and the front castors come slightly off the ground.
I did 93 miles in my chair this month and set a new record for the most miles done in a day/between charges – 9.2 miles. I was away for a few days and won’t be commenting on the rumour that I deliberately did an extra loop around the shopping centre by where I was staying to get that extra mile. It did surprise me how much distance I covered just getting ready for the day and going for breakfast in the hotel each morning.
I was sure that if there was going to be a month when I did over 100 miles in the chair it would be this one with the number of times I went to London. But I’m now beginning to suspect that is a goal I won’t meet.
