If your running for calorie burn only, faster is the way to go, however, with that comes a greater potential for muscle soreness and injury which could prevent you from running. Running is a multi-dimensional sport which require long slower runs to help build endurance and fast shorter runs to activate the fast twitch muscle fibers.
