I am telling someone that I am in for sports and spend quite some time outside at a stadium/park moving faster than walking. What is the common word for that? Am I running or jogging? Am I a runner or jogger? Is this somehow related to the professional sport vs hobby?
I've looked through wiki page:
Jogging is running at a gentle pace. 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).
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.
I do not feel confident about what it says.
Here is another version:
Jogging simply put is running in a leisurely manner that mainly aims towards body fitness. Jogging is also known as roadwork.
This sounds more natural but still leaves the question open. There is a feature-comparison included which states that
The best timing for jogging is early morning. The best time for running is in the evening/morning, or during a gym session.
This completely screws my understanding. Oh no, I am not into the medicine and I do not wish to discuss the physical aspects. I just wish to get natural at what people call jogging and running.
Are the terms simply interchangeable in a common talk?
