Thank you !! That was very helpful.
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.
Here's a pretty good article about it:

Which is more sensible, to run slowly and for a longer stretch of time, or to run more quickly,
but for less time? Thanks.
(opps, sorry to post here, I see there is another place for questions....)
