Jogging general (compcode: 12020) uses 537 kcals per hour (at 169 pounds / 76.6 kg) or 7 kcals/kg/hour
Its not clear but I think that this means average speed 4mph. When does a jog become a run? At 6mph according to Mike Antoniades.
07030 0.9 inactivity quiet sleeping
07011 1.0 inactivity quiet inactivity quiet lying quietly, doing nothing, lying in bed awake
07040 1.2 inactivity quiet standing quietly (standing in a line)
07070 1.0 inactivity light reclining - reading
1.0 is the Basal Metabolic Rate. For 169 pounds (76.6kg) calories used is 1 kcal/kg/hour = 1 x 76.6 = 76.6kcals.
So net calories for jogging is 537 - 76 = 461 calories.
Definition of Terms used in the Compendium
MET (Metabolic Equivalent): The ratio of the work metabolic rate to the resting metabolic rate. One MET is defined as 1 kcal/kg/hour and is roughly equivalent to the energy cost of sitting quietly. A MET also is defined as oxygen uptake in ml/kg/min with one MET equal to the oxygen cost of sitting quietly, equivalent to 3.5 ml/kg/min.
