What’s the difference between walking, jogging, running, and sprinting? Where does one end and another start? The main difference isn’t speed, it’s form, level of effort, and oxygenation. I explain each of these distinctions in this short video, and help you win bets when you tell friends that some people can walk faster than they can jog! Here’s a written summary of Walking vs. Jogging vs. Running vs. Sprinting: * The main difference between walking vs. jogging/running/sprinting is form. Walking has no flight time because at least one foot is always in contact with the ground. Jogging, running, and sprinting all have flight time when both feet are off the ground during part of each stride. * The main difference between jogging, running, and sprinting is level of effort. Jogging is the slowest possible running, sprinting is the fastest possible running, and running includes both jogging and sprinting. * The main difference between walking/jogging/running vs. sprinting is oxygenation. Walking, jogging, and running are aerobic, so generally the lungs can keep you going as long as your muscles can. Sprinting is anaerobic, and you’ll have to stop when your body runs too low on oxygen, usually in less than a minute. * Walking is usually the slowest, but can be faster than jogging or slower running. * Jogging is running as slowly as you can, and it can be slower than fast walking. * Running is any speed as long as both feet are off the ground at the same time for part of each stride (“flight time”), and this includes jogging and sprinting. * Sprinting is running as fast as you can. In this video, I give demonstrations on my Skillrun treadmill or show video clips of: * Walking at 3 mph (4.8 km/h) * Jogging at 4 mph (6.4 km/h) * Walking at 5 mph (8 km/h) ***Faster than my jogging speed!*** * Racewalking at about 9 mph (14.5 km/h) (world-class) * Running at 10 mph (16 km/h) * Marathon running at about 12.5 mph (20 km/h) (world-class) * Sprinting at 16 mph (25.7 km/h) ****************************************** VIDEO LINKS * This Guy Walks Faster Than You Run: https://youtu.be/k1ZbPI47aD0 * How to Racewalk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOzvn6NpeMU * Men’s 20K World Athletics Championship, Doha 2010 (excerpted): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e74uZHbbmGQ * 2016 Olympics 20K Racewalk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-EUDWZhcx0 * Racewalking vs. Power Walking: https://youtu.be/cVkXYYtKFew * Marathoner Derlis Ayala did not finish the race I show him leading, but I chose to feature him because he was recorded running alone in front at a world-class pace, while he was showing good form. 2019 World Athletics Championships – Men’s marathon (excerpted): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHY0s3RE0S0 ****************************************** UPCOMING VIDEO TOPICS * How to Sprint on Treadmills * Technogym Skillrun Treadmill Features * Full Workouts on a Technogym Skillrun Treadmill * Treadmill Training for Track Meets * How to Time Yourself on a Track for For Less Than $200 for a Virtual Track Meet * How Fast Can You Run? * Treadmill Motivation * Speed-Pace-Incline Charts * Home vs. Gym Treadmills * My attempts to break my own top sprinting speed record ****************************************** OTHER LINKS Treadmill Sprinter on Masters’ Rankings: https://mastersrankings.com/athlete-profile/?x8=2220331105180509JOHNLAMBERT ===Treadmill Sprinter Swag=== This is my very old Cafepress shop.
