1. I know how much it is in metres etc. but if I were walking 1.4 miles, how long would it take?

Thanks.
2. Depends how fast you're walking. Obviously.

such lies

a good walking speed is 4mph
30 mins will take you 2 miles
mm

ok maybe 25-35 mins

unless you go realllly fast
11. Well I walked 8! 8 I TELL YOU! If ya remember my thread a little while back A mile is bloody far in my books
12. OK, I'm not bloody stupid, I am aware that it depends how fast I walk.

But have I ever mentioned I have walking troubles, and cannot walk as fast as a normal person? So, just a normal average pace.

20 mins

my parents don't drive so maybe I'm just faster because I have to walk everywhere
14. Downhill on a nice day - 15 minutes
On a flat road on a nice day - 20 minutes
On a flat road on a horrible day (esp windy) - 25 minutes
Uphill on a horrible windy day - 30 minutes

On a flat road taking your time and dawdling - 30 minutes.

S = D/T
I know but:
S = measured in miles
D = measured in miles

So, if I'm not quite sure how long it'd take me to walk a mile, then I can't work it out!

30 minutes...

hey how can you not walk as fast as a normal person yet walk at a normal average pace?
17. Thanks everyone, I think I've got a better idea now.

I can I was just pointing out I don't have any walking problems, so can walk as fast a normal person.
19. A fit person walks at 6km/h so that's about 4mph.

So since Speed = distance / time and time = distance / speed

you'd do it in about 1.4/4 = 0.35 hour , so roughly 20 mins.

If you were jogging, it would probably take about 10 mins, or maybe a little bit more since an averagely fit person jogs at 12 kmh

It's about that distance to Uni each morning, so about 20-25 minutes downhill, 25-30 minutes up hill.
