Trying to use distance and speed as a measure of performance of a program is just ridiculous.
If you google "program execution speed" you'll find it's a commonly used term. "Lines per second" is a common measure of compiler execution speed - google "compiler lines per second" and see.
(again, if we started with 12 second and went to 21 seconds, it would be a near 75% increase. But a 75% increase is not a 75% decrease!!!!!!!!)
Speed is the reciprocal of time, meaning a decrease in time is an increase in speed.
