So which is better, jogging or running?

This question has no one correct answer, it really depends what benefits you are looking for, if you are looking to lose weight then jogging is better. At lower intensities, cardio relies primarily on burning fat, as intensity increases (running) you body starts to use up glycogen (effectively carbs) instead, these carbs are quickly replaced upon eating so there is no weight benefit in terms of weight loss from the higher intensity. Jogging at a slower pace allows you to jog for longer and therefore burn more fat!

If you're just looking to get fit i.e. faster/recover quicker, then running would be better, even better than running would be high intensity interval training (HIIT)which has recently been found to be the best way to get the most for your time, i.e. get fit quick!
