Re: a long walk: a long time or a long distance? (need native speaker's help)
It's impossible to tell. He might have walked really slowly for four hours so it was a long walk as far as time is concerned but he might not have covered much ground. He might have walked really fast for an hour but covered six miles. That would be a long way in distance but not a particularly long walk in time.
