Uh Oh I just did the math

is this too much?!? I really did not realize till I decided to figure out measure. No twists and turns. path is covered in mulch.

Typical day
Beau at 9 months old
Fetch in the backyard. Typically 3 to 4 daily sessions.
Each session is 3120 feet (measured on GIS software)

That means flat out run of 1.8 to 2.4 miles a day

and then walking 2-3 miles a day as well.

He seems to be just fine with more energy than I can manage

According to him, he would very much like to do more, not less. I just dont want to tear up developing joints.
