    Faster you run, the less calories you burn. You want to be barely moving for huge burn.

    The fastest you can run 3-5 times a week for 40~ minutes a pop without dying.

    Keep increasing the speed till you hit a real wall then start playing with the time (from session to session, not within sessions).

    i don't think it makes a huge deal of difference what speed you jog at.
    i think the average person burns about 100 calories per mile, and speed only makes minimal difference.
    obviously if you set yourself to run for a certain time rather than distance, then speed is a factor, but the faster you run the less time you'd be able to keep it up for, so it's all relative.
    sprinting intervals will help you get those calories burnt faster though.
