3.5mph average is only on flat even terrain though so 4.8mph is very fast.....

That is rapid, rapid walking.

Were you on Peruvian marching powder or something?

That's a good pace for a walk. Some people run half marathons (13.1 miles) in more time than that.

I've always walked or cycled everywhere, as i don't drive......one of my mates back in Wales walks a lot faster than me ! when we used to roam about the mountains/hills it was like he had 7 league boots on !.......he's only a little chap too !.......quite often i'd have to catch a bus at the end of a mountain walk, so people would quite often see me running down a mountain and ask, ooh your a runner ? no i'd say ' I need to catch a bus'..( often the last one of the day to get me home if getting late )..they usually looked a bit puzzled.

I'd quite often go fo 7 hour walks.....always had enough energy, it's just my feet start to hurt after a while and i'd end up getting 'flipper foot'
Love walking :D
