Which is also easily done, look up how to calculate a running average. Basically if you have
an average of A from N values then given one more value V the new average is (A+V)/(N+1).

But up to you if a little work is worth making it run twice as fast, as given the time come
down from hours to minutes it may be that it’s now fast enough for what you need to do?

There still a few more simpler improvements that are likely to give you speed improvements
that could be done without that change.
