For those of you that hike to fishing spots.

What is an average mile per hour during the summer versus the winter?

I've seen some posts from Tang and Slayer where you guys are doing 6-8 mile round trip hikes.

How long does it take you to hike that distance?

Trying to increase my endurance for long hikes and wondering what pace I should try and keep.

Thanks gents!

Thanks for the info Slayer.

It may be lame but I started doing the treadmill at full incline and 3.5-4 mph to try and get some better endurance.

I was running a few miles or doing sprints a few times a week but then I'd still get winded hiking so I'm going to switch it up to hiking on the treadmill.

I told my fiance that I'm going to start doing it with a loaded pack and she couldn't hold back the laughter!

Hey, I can't get out and hike everyday but I can at least train when I get home :)

I've been working on getting healthier.

I'm 6'1" 200 lbs and in decent shape but have been feeling less than stellar the last year.

Definitely lack of exercise, sleep and sunlight. Too much work, stress and commuting.

Haven't hardly drank alcohol since the New Year and have been exercising more.

Wasn't a drinker anyways but figured since I'm not getting drunk it's a waste of calories and money!

I feel a lot better and want to get back into fighting shape.

Plan to camp, hike and fish a lot more this year as well as hunt some small game.
