You have about 1/7 of the time in question accounted for. You're assuming for the other 6/7s that she was able to maintain this level of fitness. That is a huge leap. Also, think about why these videos are still available and why others have been taken down or were never been made available. If anything, you're likely seeing her very best effort. You should not use that as a baseline. Some people can do 60 miles in a day, but far fewer can keep that up for a week. There's nothing here to suggest that she falls in the latter group.
Agree, and to think Yorkie and Scam are even suggesting that maybe she could have done 400 miles or more is getting out there with Amy and the fairies and skipping the light fantastic in never never land.[/quote]
I've never done anything like this, but as an experienced runner I expect that cumulative fatigue is a huge factor.
So you could hit a decent number on day 1 if you just kept moving for 19 / 20hrs, but after that it's going to be very difficult.
You also have to factor in that 6mph is about marathon pace for Amy. As slow as it sounds, anything between 4 to 5 mph is not super-easy for her. It's equivalent to a decent runner (say 2h 30 marathon) grinding out 7 minute miles. Ok for a while but not for 10 hours plus daily and then repeating day after day.
