Speed of iterations on API Workflow on a list

What has been your experience with running API workflows on lists? I don’t understand why Bubble recommend we give an interval of 5 seconds between each iteration. It appears to be slow for certain operations in our apps. Is there something happening in the backend which requires this longer wait time? Are there some best practices we should understand as developers to account for this in Bubble?

Running a 2 step API workflow on a list amidst a series of 18 workflows which ends in this trigger API workflow on a list we left the iteration time at 1 second and noticed that about 5 % of the time, workflows were dropped.

Your insights as Bubble engineers is much appreciated. Thanks so much for your support!
