be jogging or go jogging

This is a multiple question from an exam sheet of junior high level in my country.
English is our foreign language.

Q: I saw Tiffany this morning. She _____ in the park at that time.
(A) was jogging (B) went jogging
(C) jogged

The answer provided is (A). Though, I wonder why (B) is not correct.

Can someone help me with this one and explain the reason for this.

Thank you for helping me.
