Default Google Maps Walking times

What do google maps base their walking times on.

I walked the distance on the map on the exact google maps route in half the time.

I am a fast walker but the times quotes by google will discourage people.

Those walking times are the times it takes a tubby yank to complete the same distance. They are ridiculous in fairness.

Well were you texting while walking? Stopping to take a few selfies, Instagrammed a photo of the burger you bought along the way. Update anyone on F/B as to what you are doing.
Google probably taking all that into account

They are based on the average time taken by a group of top class " athletes...

Surely google could show times for normal people and fatties and show a fat person symbol next to the longer time.

Surely some programmer at google whose only exerciae is to walk to the vending machine and the jacks could program this?
