Default How far can you walk before you get tired?

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post on this forum, how exciting! This is something i'm curious about. How far can you walk before you get tired or out of breathe? I'm around 420lbs and get tired after about 10mins walking. I'm soooooo unfit.

Post your weight and answer below :P

I absolutely adore a good long treck! I am around 150lbs, 5ft 8ins and usually get tired after around 6 miles of walking or 1hr 45mins in time. That was what I done today anyways but nearing the 2hr mark I just wanted a seat and a cup of tea! lol The longest I ever walked in one stretch was 8 miles and NEVER AGAIN!!!

Depends, if it is a steep slope, like ten seconds and will sound like a locomotive. In the flat for about two hours.

I'm around 270lbs and it takes me about 2 hours of walking for my legs to get tired. I only get out of breath when going up stairs or uphill.

Well, I'm 210 pounds or so, and spend most of my days sitting/laying in bed on the computer, so it may take me around 10 minutes of walking to get tired.

At 336, I couldn't make it more than a block without back aches and being winded. At 299, I've walked 2 miles home when the bus was late.
I do miss the lbs at times, maybe another opportunity will present itself or maybe not.

With my one heart valve being only 49% functional, some days I can walk probably a good 40-45 minutes and be o.k. and then other days, I'm lucky to make it a block. Yet if I am at the beach, I can start walking in the water (no more than up to my knees) without any problems for quite some time.

Oh wow. Good luck with the heart valve. I went to the beach a long long while ago lol. I was able to walk a while in it, but eventually got tired and burried myself in the sand, lol

Thanks It comes and goes but as long as I listen to my body and act upon it, it's all good. Walking in the lower surf is second nature to me - whenever I'm at the ocean, I become so invigorated - I really get my inner-strength from there, it is so inspiring, I totally lose track of time Glad you had a good time at the beach

About 5 miles. It's actually my feet that can't go on, rather than my air or my stamina.

I'm nearly the same weight as you are (427lbs) and can walk 2km / 30 minutes without being too exhausted or have aching feet.

For me it depends on a number of things. Badly fitting shoes obviously stop me, having a bad stomach etc. In terms of the actual walking, I am much better with flat surfaces and terrible at walking down hill. I also walk slowly and walking faster than I would like wears me out quicker. Provided everything is going my way it tends to be my shoulders that stop me, they sort of slide a bit in and out of socket and if they get out of socket then they grate slightly with every step and after a while it is really painful.

The longest walk I have done in recent memory was 7/8 miles which took about 3 and a half hours. That was about my limit though and it was flat. Comfortably I can walk about an hour without getting tired. Though I tried to walk up the very steep path to the Old Man of Storr in Scotland and even walking a few paces was exhausting, though it was red hot too.

I am 5'2 and about 180lbs.

Back at 300 lbs I could walk for a long time (over half an hour) with little discomfort. Now, at over 400 lbs (and, admitedly, a few additional years, too!) I get tired walking to the end of the block. Stairs are what really get me breathing hard, though.

Is that something you want to work on or are you happy being the size you are?
