It's all a matter of attitude. To hike 20 miles a day at the leisurely pace
of 2mph, you only need to hike 10hrs a day. If you sleep 8 hours, that
still leaves 6 hours each day to "watch the sun go down over the lake, or
scramble up that nearby peak, or eat a leisurely breakfast, or talk with
that interesting couple that I met on the trail." In reality you will
probably be moving 2.5 to 3mph, so your time walking is 7-8 hours, and you
have 8 or 9 hours to hang.
BUT, if you can't enjoy the time you take to do those things because you
are worrying about the miles, THEN you have a problem.
