Running vs Jogging

According to data compiled by Running USA, 17.6 million people signed up for running events in 2019.

While that number is impressive, it has decreased 2.7% from 2018 and has shown a steady decline since 2013, when 19 million of runners crossed the finish line in race. events of all distances in the US 1.

But these stats only show the number of people participating in racing events like endurance races or challenges.

There is limited data to show how many people participate in running or jogging simply because of the health and wellness benefits it provides.

Running vs. run for the benefits

Some may wonder if the benefits of running apply regardless of pace. In other words, do the health benefits of running still apply if you're running?

The difference between running and running comes down to speed. Extreme runners sometimes use the word "jog" to indicate those who run at a slower pace, or they use the word "jog" to refer to running slowly (for example, during a warm-up or cool-down).

Elite runners tend to run a lot. For example, they will run during recovery runs or between breaks.

So is running healthier than running? There is some limited evidence to show that adding speed to your weekly workout has benefits.

At least one study has suggested that higher intensity running is associated with a lower risk of hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and diabetes.

In this study, speed was used as an indicator of intensity. But the study authors noted that their results did not show causation.

Also, the problem of running at a high intensity but at a slower speed has not been addressed.

There are other studies that address speed, specifically speed intervals. As high-intensity interval training has gained popularity, more research has addressed the benefits that this form of training can offer. For runners, high intensity training generally involves running faster (rather than running).

For example, a short review published in 2017 in the Journal of Sports and Health Science addresses the topic of running speed and associated benefits.

The author indicates that fast running (speed training) has been shown to improve running performance and offer other benefits, such as increased oxygen uptake capacity and reduced risk of running-related injuries due to reduced workload and training time.

But just because running (fast) is beneficial does not mean that running is not beneficial. In fact, some advantages are seen more often in runners who maintain a slow to moderate pace.

Did the ending work out? If you are interested in starting a wellness running program, there is no reason to worry about running fast.

As with any exercise program, consistency is key. Establish a program that is realistic for you. You are likely to make a profit regardless of the pace.
