Is there a difference between Jogging and running...or is a jog a slow run?? LOL
It's always bothered my Father, whgo hates being called a Jogger - even at 63!!!
Jogging suggests someone not very serious about it, whereas running suggests purpose and altheticism!
I always say running
I read something that I dont' really agree with, but apparnetly technically a runner is someone who does under a 9 minute mile.
I think it's silly. I agree with Wilkie though - runners put more into it and take it more seriously. It's like those annoying people who go swimming in training lanes, and do a bobbing breastroke with their heads about the water so as not to wet the hair. AND they know nothing about pool ettiquette. Should be drowned really. Difference between a "swimmer" and a "person in a pool"
I'm a runner.
Stoxy (10:30 minute miler).
I knew I was going to put my foot in it!!
It's ok though - you are a runner so you can be a person in a pool...
I agree with PloddingOn.
I consider myself a runner but am nowhere near a 9-minute mile at the present time . Goodness me, I go out in any weather (even 'bum-numbing' levels of cold ) and get hideously frustrated when either I'm not able to go out running or I fall short of targets I set myself (something which has happened rather a lot in recent times). Not sure whether 'athleticism' comes into it for me, but certainly purpose.
Not sure whether I call myself a swimmer or not. I deliberately don't go in the lanes cos I don't consider myself good enough, but I do duck my head under the water properly when doing breaststroke, and at least attempt to swim other strokes! An infrequent swimmer perhaps as well, but I do try to take it seriously when I'm there.
Joggers = those suffling around without a goal.
runners = a goal of finishing in race or better PB
On second thoughts, I am a person in a pool!
I only took up swimming because I'd sprained my ankle and couldn't run, and I only carry on with it to supplement the running. Not enough scenery to keep me occupied.
Ha ha ha - oh crap I started something didn't I?? No NBS in pools though!
I get to be a runner and a swimmer.
But I am a person on a bike!
I'm a person on a bike - or I would be if I owned one.
Joggers, persons on bikes and persons in the pool.
Pull your finger out, a sprint tri is not that far.............

yes go on, NOW.
Biddy persons in pool, always in my way
I wanna do a tri again
Think that now I would fall off the bike though...
This one again? I guess it has been nearly a month since the last time we debated it on the forum.
There's no such thing as jogging. It doesn't exist. You can't jog. You can walk or you can run. There's nothing in between (unless you're a horse..... then you can trot and canter).
Cheers - I think it is people that plod around a park 1 to 2 times a week for 10/20 mins.
Speed is nonsense if that is not your goal...
Check Anton Krupicka (google) and then film indulgence on youtube and get back to me...
He runs about 150 miles a week - alot barefoot - slow at times BUT he is not a jogger
A jogger is someone who wears a velour tracksuit.
A runner wears anything else
