Jog & Run...Difference???
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.............
