He's going to walk 10 miles a day for 3 months? Wow, that's like, a not-very-intense training plan for a 1/2 marathon. He's so crazy, you just don't know what he's going to do!!!

I'm going to spend 1,500 hours on Fark this year.  People will look at me like I'm crazy.  Which is a correct way of looking at someone who spends 4 hours a day on Fark.

Headline: Edmond Pastor Runs To Fight Human Trafficking
Article: "I've been getting up every morning at 4 a.m. and walking for two hours," Cuthbertson said. "And then in the evening, I walk another five miles. And on days it's sunny, my kids come out too."

Look, as a middle-of-the-pack ultrarunner, I can appreciate that there's a fine line between what some people call running and other people call walking, but come on man.  10 miles a day?

On his 33rd birthday on March 9, he walked 33 miles alone.

ok, to be fair my 30th birthday was the same day and I pussed out after running only 10 miles, so he's got me beat there.  His deathmarch is easily more impressive than my DNF
 
2013-03-15 12:33:47 AM
Maybe the walking vs running thing is just a case of the news reporters being idiots, like this olympic gold medalist who apparently ran a 61 minute "marathon" after never having run before.

so ...umm....walking 10 miles a day for 100 days straight is VERY doable....

That will take some discipline but it's not an incredibly difficult feat, particularly if he's on pavement all the time and he's only going to do it for 100 days.

If he were a real badass for Jesus, he'd do this:

There's a 12-year-old girl who hiked the Appalachian Trail last year and the Pacific Crest Trail the year before that with her dad. She averages more than 20 miles a day. She's training for the Continental Divide Trail right now. This guy thinks 10 miles a day is a lot? Okay...

Came to whine about 'only 10 miles' the same as everyone else

then I saw the guy's doing it for a charity, so..... what the heck..... It's only 10 miles a day, but if it earns a few $s then it's all good

To be fair, I think the guy who did it had basically run 26 miles immediately after fighting in a major battle, more-or-less making it the equivalent of running 2 back-to-back.
 
2013-03-15 08:10:17 AM
Wow.  10 miles a day.

THIS


The average walking speed of an adult human is somewhere around 3 MPH. He really only needs to walk 3.5 hours a day to accomplish this "superhuman task".

cynicalbastard: To be fair, I think the guy who did it had basically run 26 miles immediately after fighting in a major battle, more-or-less making it the equivalent of running 2 back-to-back.


 "The guy" was pretty fictional anyway. The Greek had professional runners/couriers and Pheidippides was supposed to be one, so even if that were actually true he wouldn't have been fighting. I think people are still doing a run based on an earlier version of the story, where he ran from Athens to Sparta in under two days (only to be declined there), which is a 150 mile run (he didn't die in that version).

Some Swiss thought this was too nice a story not to copy after they had a battle at "Murten". In this version, it took only 10 miles for the runner to die. Probably the first and last time the Swiss did anything faster than anyone else.

CSB - I worked as a hike leader at an Outward Bound type place for a few summers.  One hike, in the Appalachians, one of our precious snowflakes left her supposedly vital medication at the last campsite.  She of course told me this as she trudged into our campsite for that night.  And of course she was the last person in.  So I had to hike all the way back to our previous campsite and then all the way back to the present one.  36 miles, about a third of it in the dark, but only a third of it with a full pack on.
So, I'm CSBing this to a Marine friend of mine, who said, yeah, we used to do that stuff.  With a sixty pound pack on.  The entire time.  On two hours' sleep.  In pants and five pound boots.  But, really, FLMM, that's a cool story.

My doctor told me to walk five miles every day. Six month later, I called him and said "Doc, I'm at the border and they won't let me cross. What should I do?"

I like how all of you are saying a 10 mile walk is a breeze when I don't think I'd be far off from guessing that half of you are wheezing and panting just from the 10 yard jaunt from basement to refrigerator to restock on Mt Dew and cheetos.

It isn't like the guy is through-hiking the Appalachian Trail.  10 miles, not carrying a 40-lb pack and not on a rocky trail is a nice walk, if one is in decent shape.  Not everyone on Fark is a fat load.

\did 10 miles, last Sunday
\\with a head cold

Not trying to take anything away from their goal, but 10 miles a day isn't that bad if you have trained very much at all.  And especially if you are walking it.  At only 4MPH you can finish it in 2.5 hours per day.

Good for the person doing it, I hope that they have nice weather because nothing is much worse than doing 10 miles in the cold rain.

It's Edmond, Oklahoma. I'm from Ada (town with chicks that like to hide handguns in their vaginas) I don't expect anything from "reporters" other than the obligatory interview every spring with a shirtless guy after a tornado wiped out another trailer park.
 
2013-03-15 10:55:01 AM
There are a lot of haters in this thread. Walking 10 miles is not a huge feat in an of itself.

Having the resolve to do ANYTHING consistently for 100 days straight is however.

I bet most of the people dismissing this as an accomplishment couldn't do it.
