    Default pace and speed

    Dear teachers,
    I think I can say "to walk/work at this pace or speed". I can also say "living pace".
    My question is: Can I say "living speed"?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Hi Jiang,
    "Living pace" is referred to as the "pace of life". "Living speed" is not used generally.
    Hope this answers your question.
