Are you a Runner or a Jogger?
I came back from running last week, into the office for shower, and my colleague asked, "pergi jogging ke?".
Jogging? Did I just spend 1 hour jogging? Was I not running?
Silly as it sound, I was a little fluttered and upset that I was referred as a jogger (hahahah) which my mental image is a casual runner who 'moves' with baggy track bottoms, with flourescent plastic caps.
I thought I went running. I thought I am a runner (wannabe?).
Similarly, I have this identical reference to all questions from people except for running friends and my daughter & wife. But really, got difference aa?
Pardon my crap at googling and my ability to digest words is limited.
Wikipedia simply refers to jogging as a form of trotting or running at a very slow/leisurely pace, and anything lower than 10km/hr.
And running, with its extensive definition and explanation, sums at as a mean for us moving on foot, and ranges from a very slow jog to a fast sprint - hence a broader definition.
So OK, then most of my runs are equally jogs, but all jogs are essentially runs, so after all, I am a runner. We are all runners, from the pros to the strong aunties (yes, last week a veteran lady smoked me in Lake Garden... maluuuuu!).
