I walk three miles and it takes me about 50 minutes. I would like to get it down to 45 minutes.

15 to 17 minutes depending on my mood and the weather. Having the wind in front of you or behind you makes a big difference!

approximately 16-17 minutes per mile. My route is usually 3 miles long and it takes me about 50-51 minutes to complete. I sometimes will jog between electrical poles, that shaves some time off.

15-20 minutes at a normal pace. If I try to go faster I can maybe shave off a minute or two.

15 - 20 minutes today. Depends on the area I'm walking in. Hills are of course alot slower than flats. I don't do a whole lot of flats. The pavement like a sidewalk would improve my time greatly. I don't have that anywhere to walk on. I use to be faster but I'm older now. I think I'm doing okay. I can't remember how long it took me when I was heavier. 25 minutes? More? All I remember is how badly walking hurt my ankles.

If I'm walking at lunchtime during work, usually 20-25 minutes. If I'm walking on the treadmill or for a good workout- 12-15 minutes.

About 17 minutes on the treadmill. About 25 outside if we're hiking up and down hill.

It depends on whether we are walking with children along or by ourselves. If we,(my walking partners) are without children, we can walk a mile in 15-18 minutes. If we have the kiddos along, a one mile walk can take 30 minutes or even more. They want to stop and examine the flowers, and pick the dandilions, the violets, the buttercups, etc, check out the goldfish in the pond, climb the steps at the church we pass, and say hello to every doggie that we pass. Seeing our walk through our children's eyes make take longer, and we may not get home as fast, but it is fun and full of joy. Proverbs says that children are a hertiage of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is a reward. emoticon

About 19 or 20 minutes, but I take rather long walks and don't try to push too fast. On shorter walks I can beat that.

I also do the 3.5 on the treadmill, but adjust it a little faster and slower from time to time, so a little less than 20 minutes.

It takes me, normally, about 15 minutes to walk a mile - however, when I am trying to do my cardio, I can walk a mile in about 13:30 - without jogging or running.

I'm 5'2", and if I'm really trying hard, I can do a 15 min. mile. My more normal pace is 17 min. I walk a lot--no car-- so it's probably through decades of practice that I can go faster, despite my short steps.

When I first started 3 yrs ago 17 min. mile, now I walk a 12 minute mile. If I add an incline of 4 or higher my pace slows down...

THAT WAS A GREAT QUESTION...I ALWAYS WONDERED TOO HOW LONG A WALK WOULD BE TO REACH A MILE. I PROBABLY COULD HAVE RESEARCHED IT MYSELF BUT AT THE TIME, I WAS NOT MOTIVATED TO TRY TO FIGURE SUCH A THING OUT. THANK YOU FOR ASKING THAT QUESTION emoticon

I've been saying 17 min/mi when I use the Fitness Tracker, but I should really recalculate -- I might be walking faster than that.

About 14 - 15 mins on the treadmill and 20 walking the pup. He likes to stop and sniff everything.

Walking outside - about 15 min per mile
Treadmill - about 18 min per mile
I have no idea why it differs so much! I just did a 10K (6.2) this past weekend and I averaged 18.08 min per mile. I finished in just under 2 hours which I understand is pretty good.
