Hi,

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.

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....)
