Time: around 2 hours, including a short break at the halfway point.
Round Trip: 10 Km (a little over 6 miles).
Elevation Gain: mostly flat.
Pace: Between 4.5 km/hr and 5.2 km/hr (around 2.9 miles/hr).

    Sorry but by your description it looks like that I am still not in good shape enough to make it to this coming walk. I have just started to walk to work in August, which is about 2 km. I have fractured a bone in my foot and still need not to overdo it.... but I love to walk and have really missed it for the last few months. I wish you all a great walk and a nice day for it.
