You could look at the activities you mention as answers to the question "What will I do?"
You can say
I will do some jogging or
I will do jogging to lose weight.

But for a specific running task, You would not say either
*I will do jogging 5 km.
or
*I will jogging 5 km.

The same answer applies to your original question. The bare form of the verb, rather than the gerund, fits better with "I'll do...", with each verb taking the place of "do":

I'll jog 5 km, swim 5 miles, and eat five hot dogs.
