    @ROBOTFOOD I lived in Vegas for a while, back in the 90s. I could not imagine running there in July/August during the day, and probably would be out there at midnight with you if I still did! I was a fat desk jockey when I lived there so running was not much of thought. :)
    Ya man summer runs down in the valley aren’t very fun until Oct. The night runs are great though. Just have to be on extreme rattlesnake alert.

    @Teresa502 Thanks!

    Guys! I just ran 2.25 continuous miles without stopping! My best continuous run was 1.25 miles and that was two days ago :)

    Total Miles Completed:

    My August Runs/Walks
    8/2: 3.09 miles
    8/5: 3.27 miles
    8/10: 3.25 miles total (1.25 mile of continuous run and walk/run alternating for 2 miles)

    Congratulations! That must feel terrific!

    Missed this post the first time, but way cool! Well done!

    Thanks to you both! It is exciting and feels good to do it :)

    I've been out of the thread for a while. I asked this in the FB group but figured I'd throw it out here too.

    So I'm going to start running this weekend. Doc said to come back slow so I was thinking of doing something like couch to 5k. The last time I did this was before apps (I had to print out the plan!). Should I get a free app or use some kind of plan from the apps I already have (nike, strava and garmin)? Or just go by feel?
    I downloaded the NHS podcasts when I started c25k in February. I am currently working on the B210k podcasts

    @PastorVincent Does GF stand for gluten free or General Mills? Oh, and are you willing to share the recipe?

    Gluten-Free. I can not have wheat, so I eat gluten-free. :) It is actually a ridiculously easy recipe that I found on the Pillsbury site. It really is very good despite that. I leave the salt out completely (why they add it I dunno) and use more vanilla then they call for, use special dark cocoa instead of regular, maybe some other random things, but largely follow it. Sorta :smiley:

    Here:
    https://www.pillsburybaking.com/recipes/gluten-free-chocolate-frosted-devils-food-cake-7691

    It is odd, cause when you make the "batter" it has the consistency of WATER. Nothing like a regular cake. I thought it really messed up the first time I made it, but it came out great and no one can tell it is GF unless you tell them.

    Several months ago (or more) you posted a photo of a chocolate cake that looked super yummy. Was that this recipe??

    Yes. What you missed is my son just turned 16 so I made the cake and the group here wanted to see the picture, so I shared it, and this time they asked for the recipe, so shared that too :)

    @PastorVincent I'm bookmarking that recipe!

    Thanks everyone for the ideas! I think I'm going to do a hal higdon novice 5k plan until I get back to "normal". Still hoping I'll be able to get back and start marathon training. I'm doing one in January no matter what.

    I have some changes I am planning to try with it, but I decided not to that for his party. Will just randomly make it again at some point and see what else I can muck with. :)

    @rheddmobile Happy anniversary!

    I was intending to go back to the gym on Monday morning but work was still busy. I did go back to Zumba on Tuesday and was back at the gym today so should be back to my usual routine soon!
