today was the day for the driving test that was required because of medical changes - my patience was tested before the event by the driving instructor being 45 minutes late for the pre-test lesson, where I had planned to go through all of the slow speed manoeuvres to get the feeling for the left foot accelerator & brake transitions - ended up had time for just one reverse park in the drive to the testing office!

PASSED! 5 YEAR LICENCE! now to make the most of it.

5k parkrun race (newy) 59:30 [4] 5.0 km (11:54 / km)
weight:75kg shoes: armcrutches

first parkrun at newy for a while; line-to-line time was 58:50, with about 15 second negative split

perfect conditions - about 15degrees, light breeze, sunny, & lots of encouragement from other parkrunners - enjoyed this one a lot

Note: near the turn-around at Linwood there was a tempting offer on display - a white sailboard on the grass, with a sign on it "free" - would have been perfect for a paddle back across Throsby Creek to the finish-line, unless it was free because it leaked and would only get half-way before it sank - so I punched out another 2km of walking instead.
