    Jogging is a great form of steady rate cardio. It's also very practical and a great way to get out and enjoy nature. Some people do not like jogging because they say it's bad for your joints but we were made to move. And any myths about running being bad for your joints are pretty much dispelled by people like Dean Karnazes. http://www.atlxtv.com/2013/08/08/karno-is-not-superhuman/
    Also steady rate cadio can have some advantages to HIIT depending on what your goals are. Here is a great article on steady rate vs high intensity cardio. http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/going-steady-5-reasons-to-do-steady-state-cardio.html I give jogging an easy 5 stars!
