I have a couple of jogging questions:

I was wondering if jogging twice a day can be counter-productive? I'm planning on jogging once in the morning and once in the evening/night. The distance is around 6-7 miles (from my house, to my high school and back to my house - pretty much a big circle). I might change the evening/night route to something shorter since there's some weird people that walk around at night (I'm sure they would think the same thing about me jogging at night).

What kind of clothing would be appropriate for jogging? I usually wear running shoes, gym shorts, and a worn out South Pole shirt. What got me to question what I usually wear for jogging is what I've seen Boxers wear when they jog. A majority of boxers I've seen train wear hoodies and pants, regardless of the climate (kind of like what Rocky Balboa wore).

It depends on your background. Do you jog now? how many miles a week? If you are starting from zero, no it is not a good idea.

Clothes come down to comfort. Good running shoes are a must. Also, synthetic running socks. After that it is comfort. Running clothers are expensive.

I used to jog daily though I'm pretty out of it since I haven't really worked out in a while. Chances are pretty good that I won't be able to jog the entire 6-7 miles without stopping or stepping down to a walk (I used to do that anyway when I used to jog, I never once jogged without stopping).

The long clothes (hoods) are usually to lose weight quicker. Well here in Florida its hot, so running here we wear shorts and a t shirt. Anything that is light is good.

Then I would not do doubles. You will be at a high risk of injury jogging on tired legs. It takes a while to build up to doubles.

Consistently jogging at a steady pace will, over time, slow down your legs in your Martiasl Arts. Jogging develops slow twitch muscles which are made for endurance, but not speed. Make sure you mix jogging with other training that works out your fast twitch muscles—your speed. You can also jogg for a while and then sprint as fast you can, then jog for a while again, etc.

Jogging is just one part of my overall workout. I need to build up my cardiovascular system since at the moment, it's extremely poor. The other day I tried boxing my kicking bag for a whole round (three minutes) and I tired out pretty fast two minutes into it.

I agree with Olga. Jogging is not going to help much with martial arts related cardio endurance. Look into tabata protocol. I have found them much more useful for what we do:

actually after about 14 your muscle fibers are set in stone so theres really bugger all you can do about it

jog if you want it wont bugger your kicks, but it may build a different type of fitness than what you want

Then do just this to develop your cardio. Spend time working on your bag.
