State of mind -
If you think you run then you are a runner, if you think you jog then you are a jogger
Cut and paste this link - it's all you need to know
Whoops (forgot the ".") - this should work
Haven't we discussed this before at great length?
I'll say what I always say which is............. there's no such thing as jogging so you can't possibly be a jogger. If you have two legs you only have a choice of two stride patterns. Walking or running. If you walk you're a walker. If you run you're a runner.
Of course, if you're a horse you can also trot and canter
We had this discussion at my run club on monday and someone suggested that the best way to look at it is as runner v's serious runner....a serious runner is bothered about times/positions.
i don't care if someone calls me a jogger though....i don't run fast, don't care about times or race positions i just care that i get out there and do it. call me what you like.....i've been called worse!
Read or heard somewhere is difference is runners enter events......
Joggers have "feel good" runs, runners "train".
and if they get to the front door in 59.55..they run up and down the street till exactly 1 hour..
Oh no! thats a 5 second PB!
how can you define "run" though? I'm a slow plodder (jogger if you like)... but i can up the pace a bit should i choose to if the moment takes me...does that make me a runner too?
I think most so called "joggers" can go quicker if they want just as quicker "joggers" can go slower.....
we're all running aren't we?
there isn't a difference. the concept of "jogging" which was invented in the 60s was just distance running for fitness' sake, ie as opposed to "running" which historically had the connotation 'as fast as you can'.
if you take offence at being called a jogger, then you're probably just a little bit of an idiot
I run faster when out with the club and a lot slower around the park on my own.
Am I allowed to be both a runner and a jogger?????
