Andrea, this has been a popular topic before. I'm like you, we've always walked Bodie a lot at a young age. We have three types of walks for him, a short, medium and long walk. The short walk is usually going around the block. A medium is going a few blocks and pushing close to a mile. A long walk is 2-3 miles. Those are usually reserved for the weekends.

I've never seen any signs of fatigue or soreness after the long walks. The only thing we do see is him getting thirsty. So depending on how he's holding up and availability of a vacant house I'll grab a hose and give him water during out walk. But usually he's fine until we get home. However, with spring and summer approaching I think having more water breaks will be important.

So I wouldn't worry about it too much. No super long walks at his age. Watch his body and for signs of discomfort and fatigue. If you see any then cut the walk short.
