Serious question, can't someone 'walk' 50 miles a day?

I could probably walk a marathon in under 7 hours pretty easily. So I could walk 50 miles in around 14 hours. That leaves 8 hours for sleeping too. Are his 40 mile days just moreso rest?

No matter if he's cheating or not, he's really putting his body through the ringer. Sounds like he might die attempting this feat.

Certainly. Anyone who is reasonably fit could walk 50-miles in a day. A few less could walk 50-miles on two consecutive days. Even fewer could walk 50-miles a day for a week. Far fewer could sustain that rate for a month ....
