Is it running or is it jogging?

I want to know, what is the difference between running and jogging? Ok so i know that one is at a faster pace than the other, but does it have to meet a certain speed to be running. Let me explain myself...I've been doing this running prgram and yesterday I sped up just a tad, from 4.40mph to 4.5mph, it is as fast I can keep it up for 1.5 miles. When I came home all excited, I was met with comments that a 4.4 or 4.5 pace is really just jogging. I am thinking that if it is as fast as I can run, then it is running for me and jogging for someone who can go faster but chooses to go slower. Anyway, its kind of frutrating, because I am so proud of myself, for speeding up, just that bit. Please let me know what you think!!

At the rate you are going it is jogging. I think actual running begins at 6.0 mph.
However, you are doing great and you should keep it up. Eventually you will be able to go faster and longer. Jogging or not, it is doing something good for your body.

I don't think there is a consensus. I recall reading in a newspaper or magazine article about 10 years ago a runner (by his own definition) saying there are about 300 runners in the country (U.S.) and the rest are joggers. My own opinion is in two parts. First, it's better to call it running because that expresses an aspiration and attempt to do it well, even if at present you're not that good. And second, if I'm walking briskly, if I pass you, then you're jogging, and if you pass me, then you're running. This opinion is worth exactly what you paid for it.

Every one you pass is jogging. Everyone who passes you is running really fast.

I think the difference (and I could be making this up) has to do with stride length and the amount of time you spend in the air (no feet touching the ground) with each stride. Therefore it is going to vary by individual. When I am going 5 mph (12-min mile) I am definitely jogging -- the gait has a v. short aerial phase, if any -- but at 6 mph (10-min mile) I am using an extended stride and running.

Looking around the internet, I see several references that say 6 mph (10-min miles) is the boundary between jogging and running, and one reference that says a 9-minute mile is the boundary.

Running is relative to the person.A shorter person with shorter legs will not have the same stride as a taller person.
If you were going as fast as you could for the distance you wanted to achieve - you ran.

For the record, I like 1:29's response the most!!

But I'll throw in what the treadmill at my gym says. It's got shortcuts so you don't have to stand there poking at the buttons for ages, so there are three buttons - walking @ 3mph, jogging @ 5mph, running at 7mph.

With the Super Bowl and Sochi Olympics rapidly approaching, gangsters are seeing dollar signs Wholesale Jerseys 2016 .Sophisticated crime rings are developing pop-up e-marketplaces and sourcing cheap apparel from abroad, readying to profit millions of dollars selling counterfeit goods to unsuspecting deal hunters Stitched NFL Patch.More than $17 million worth of Super Bowl 2013 merchandise -- from fake jerseys, hats and jackets to tickets and other souvenirs -- was seized last year, according to U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement.

While the NFL has forced the shutdown of more than 2,500 websites offering counterfeit team merchandise
  • Movie Football
  • , the federal government arrested a dozen people ahead of this year's Super Bowl and the Sochi Organizing Committee pledged to implement a more effective response to the theft of licensed Olympic gear
  • Winnipeg Blue Bombers Jersey
  • , the hill is steep.Without further consumer awareness, defeat is like a large-scale game of whack-a-mole, said David Sugden, an attorney specializing in grey markets at Call & Jensen.“Whenever there’s demand for anything --whether it is sports memorabilia or airplane parts -- you’re going to find there’s an effort from dishonest entrepreneurs to sell dishonest products,” he said.Brands may succeed in shutting down one
  • Atlanta Falcons Jersey
  • , but two more are always waiting in the wings.Traditional crime rings are attracted to the ease of importing apparel over, say, drugs and narcotics, and can quickly develop a website for the sale of illicit merchandise
  • Baltimore ravens Jersey
  • . The sites can also be written in such a way that the actual ring leaders are difficult to prosecute.

    And it's extremely lucrative
  • Indianapolis Colts Jersey
  • . Despite the fact that some of these counterfeited products are indeed far superior to their legitimate counterparts, thieves oftentimes price them in the same ballpark so as to maintain the ruse that the products being purchased are real
  • Buffalo Bills Jersey
  • .“It allows you to maintain the margins of legitimate goods, making it an extremely attractive business with a very low barrier to entry,” said Fred Feldman, chief marketing officer of brand protection firm MarkMonitor
  • Chicago Bears Jersey
  • , which works with the NFL.It’s also easier to fool a shopper online, whereas consumers tend to be more cautious of a random man selling t-shirts out of the back of his truck in the rear of the stadium parking lot.

    “Prior to Internet commerce
  • Cincinnati Bengals Jersey
  • , counterfeiters were often outside of stadiums or in flea markets or just on city streets,” said Sugden. “That kind of environment suggests to a reasonable consumer that this stuff probably is not authentic.”

    Of course, some shoppers looking for
  • Cleveland Browns Jersey
  • a deal are willing to sacrifice the quality. In fact, a MarkMonitor survey from 2012 found that these deal hunters are 20 times more likely to buy counterfeit than regular consumers.

    “Consumers have become more price sensitive and understand that one of the powers of the Internet is to compare and contrast prices to find the best deal NFL ,” Feldman said.

    With millions of revenue on the line, that has become a nightmare for brand owners.
