What is jogging?

With releasing Run Trainer version 3.1 for iOS and Android, we introduced new training schedules in the app. In the new 5 to 10KM schedule we are introducing ‘Jogging’, a step which simply means running with a slower speed. It’s between walking and running to increase your fitness with less stress on your body.

In wikipedia terms:

Jogging is running at a slow speed.[1] The definition of jogging as compared with running is not standard. One definition describes jogging as running slower than 6 miles per hour (10 km/h).

[2]Jogging is also distinguished from running by having a wider lateral spacing of foot strikes, creating side-to-side movement that likely adds stability at slower speeds or when coordination is lacking
