Can one say
a. I wake up early every morning so that I have thirty minutes to jog.
b. I wake up early every morning so that I have thirty minutes for jogging.

c. I wake up early every morning so that I have time to jog.
d. I wake up early every morning so that I have time for jogging.

?

The sentences are mine.

My feeling is that they all work.

Many thanks.

    a feels a bit unusual; the rest are fine.

    I think my concern about a is because at first glance I read thirty minutes as the object of jog - I expect a parallel structure to I have work to do. I then realize that I have understood the sentence wrongly and have to reparse it.
