I finished the first season of Orange is the New Black. I’ll have to wait until June for the second season. So, I added a bunch of documentaries to my Netflix list. I love documentaries so I’m really falling in love with my treadmill. I can’t even remember the last time I ran outside.
I finished Nat Geo’s Russia’s Toughest Prisons and started watching Forks over Knives.
Russia’s Toughest Prisons was really interesting. Those four miles went by really quickly.
I’ve only watched 20 minutes of Forks over Knives. I think this graph is really interesting. The green bar is from the early 1900’s and the red bars are from 2007 (meat), 1999 (refined sugar) and 2006 (dairy). On average, Americans consumed 605 lbs of dairy products in 2006. Wow.
I thought that sounded crazy so I did a quick Google search and found this NPR article. It reports that in 2011 the average American consumed 630 lbs of dairy products, 415 lbs of veggies (mostly corn and potatoes), 273 lbs of fruit, 185 lbs meat and poultry and , 141 lbs of sweeteners and 85 lbs of fat.
3 miles – 34:36 – treadmill
6 miles – 1:09:03 – treadmill
4.5 – 54:00 – treadmill
Total – 13.5 miles
What was your week of running like?
Do you prefer documentaries, movies or TV series (is there a term for that)?
How do you pass the time on the treadmill?
Are you surprised that the largest food group that Americans consume is dairy? (I am!)
