What word can be used to describe moving at a moderate pace?
Slowlydescribes slow speed.
Quicklydescribes fast speed.

The context is to have a list of words from which a user can choose the best adverb to describe the speed of a moving object.
Working on a software tool for a person to use while monitoring video. In this software they will be able to assign different speeds to a “target” (not a person and not alive). I need to have a list of adverbs they can choose from (thus the reason for a single word, otherwise the list will look funny and be too complicated).
- Low speed
- Medium speed
- High Speed

Actually, on the speed-control labels these are often shortened to:
– LO, MED, HI
