This is absolutly correct. You especially should finish the running routine with a light jog as a cooldown, or else you risk injury. I do the same as the kid said where I finish sprint the last few hundred meters of my distance run, but once I finish I'll do a very light jog around the block.

you need to be able to last. of course intensity is important, but if you burn out, you lose.

I didn't say jogging for the first 5-10 minutes was bad, I'm saying when you run, run...don't just jog along for 30 minutes....when I do my runs I try to balance intensity and distance, so I'll aim for a 3 mile run in 18 or under. and I usually walk for a couple minutes as a cooldown

Look at it this way

Sprinting - short high intensity burst of energy.
Distance running - slow/moderate paced jog over distance.

Both train different energy systems, both are required for boxing. So, after re-reading our posts I suppose we're both right.

If you decide to jog, do it on an empty stomach.

1) You get you're energy from stored fat. Hello abs.
2) You get to sleep in later since you don't have to make breakfast.

Running on an empty stomach makes no difference except you won't be able to run as hard + your body is more likely to burn muscle for energy, not fat.

that is the stupid mistake most people make these days, they pick one over the other.

Yeah, I should really have read the post properly. Anyway, long distance running (if that's actually what you mean by jog) will definately cause you to burn muscle if you don't eat before you begin.

By low intensity jogging I meant just that. Yes long distances are fine. It won't use you're muscles as it's source of energy assuming you are doing low intensity. (Which will not help out the OP too much.)

A banana is what I usually eat before a morning run, along with a glass or half a glass of water depending how I feel. Mix up your running speed, jog mostly for the first bit then start peaking at a fast pace 65% through the run.
