TREADMILL * vs* TRACK



Ever wondered why you can run the distance on the Treadmill but not on the Track? 
Here are several reasons: 

1. CLIMATE- on a treadmill, you are in a climate-controlled environment. You don't have sunshine, rain, wind, crosswinds, or the many other effects of being outside harassing you. You're inside, where it's peaceful and calm.
2. THE MACHINE - The treadmill moves the ground underneath you. You can set the speed for 10 mph and fly along if you can pick your feet up fast enough. When you're outside, you are physically driving yourself forward, the ground isn't running underneath you. It takes more strength and endurance to stay on your feet. 
3. SURFACE - No matter how soft or graded the track is, you are running on uneven surfaces compared to a treadmill. Treadmills are flat. Tracks have small rocks, different surface features, and your stabilizers work to keep you upright, not the treadmill handles. A lot of energy is spent staying on your feet when you are outside.
4. TURNS - If you are running in circles, you slow down to make your turns. When you are running straight ahead, or in a single line, there may be other runners/ walkers you have consider and curve around. but on a treadmill, you don't need to make turns or slow down.

Treadmills have a lot of wonderful features and has less shock and impact on the joints. Therefore; if you are having difficulty with joint pain and other ailments. A treadmill or elliptical machine  may be best. ~Take Care Friends~

"BREAST CANCER FACTS" ~2010 and 2013~


2010

  • The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for breast cancer in the United States are for 2010:
  • About 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women.
  • About 54,010 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
  • About 39,840 deaths from breast cancer (women)
  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer.
  • It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.
  • The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is a little less 1 in 8. 
  • The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 35
  • Breast cancer death rates have been consistently dropping. Which is probably the result of finding cancer earlier and better treatment. 
  • Right now there are more than 2½ million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

2013
  • In 2013, an estimated 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed among US women, as well as an estimated 64,640 additional cases of in situ breast cancer.
  •  Approximately 39,620 US women were expected to die from breast cancer. Only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths in women.
  • Breast cancer incidence rates are highest in non-Hispanic white women, followed by African American women and are lowest among Asian/Pacific Islander women. 
  • In contrast, breast cancer death rates are highest for African American women, followed by white women.
  • Breast cancer death rates are lowest for Asian/Pacific Islander women. Breast cancer incidence and death rates also vary by state. "American Cancer Society"
