He has told you what is good and what the Lord requires of you:
to do justice; to love kindness; and walk, humbly, with your God.
Thanks for sharing the why. Often hear it's best to go slower on many of your runs, but don't often hear why you should do this.

rules of success*
3. Go easy MOST of the time
Complete about 80 percent of your runs at a pace that's about 60 to 90 seconds slower than your goal race pace. It should feel comfortable: if you're huffing and puffing, you're going too fast. Your heart and lungs adapt more quickly than muscles, tendons, and bones when you increase mileage. Frequent running at an easy pace gives your musculoskeletal system a chance to get stronger and catch up with your cardiovascular gains.
