Trottiner vs faire jogging

I understand that the choice of verb has to do with how fast you are running.  As a former runner, I don't see a great difference between trotting and jogging.  My dictionary gave trottiner as a possibility for jog.  Should it have been acceptable?

Bonjour Frank,

"Trottiner" implies a very low speed unlike "faire du jogging" in French. You tend to use it with kids / old people... 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
