Depends on the running is quite smooth, and not at all bouncing up and down. 'Normal' amateur running does quite a bit of bouncing though. The trick is to land at your center of gravity in motion. The only difference between jogging and sprinting is the level of inclination.

My resting heart rate is around:

I know this because I once was tested three times a day for a week.
Back than I thought this was something good.
Because I've been to doctors for this. And they all say that it was just a good sport heart.
But when those tests were done I hadn't sported for a year.

Now I'm thinking that it might be a sign of hypothyoridism.
Still trying to figure this out. I might do a blood test.

I am partaking in a big long time study in Sweden called LifeGene. I went for the first time two days ago. My resting heart rate was then 68, but this was after I just performed a spirometrical test 3 times to test my lung function.
My spirometrical test was above expectations, I had 122% of expected function for my age group, and 113% of expected for my age group during the first second.
They took some other tests but that's not relevant in this post. :o)
