If it really says no less than 5 days, when coupled with item 3 on the
application, that would cause you to do no more than ten miles per day.
You could cover less then ten and do the hike in 6 or 7 days. On the other
hand, if it actually says no *more* than 5 days then the two would be
requiring exactly 10 mile per day. (I don't have a copy of the
requirements handy to check.)
