How long does it take to walk the Camino de Santiago?

Calendar

The question was:

I am planning to walk from St Jean at the end of August and have really only 30-32 days to do it in. I a mfairly fit and a good walker. All that I have read tells me that it takes between 28 days and 35 days to complete. I also know that rest days are important… so my question is (and I know it is silly) but from experienced walkers how long does it take?
