    It takes a lot of self-discipline

    Is it correct to say:

    "It takes a lot of self-discipline to go jogging in winter."
    (Or we should use do instead of go here?)

    No. One goes jogging.

    Re: It takes a lot of self-discipline

    What about:
    "Do some jogging?"

    I wouldn't use that either.

    Re: It takes a lot of self-discipline

    "Jog" or "go jogging" are the natural choices. I prefer the latter because it is understood to refer to a type of exercise, rather than an occasional increase in your walking speed when you are in danger of missing the bus, for example.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
