You have mistyped the numeric character 1 (one) in place of the letter l
(el, lowercase L). P1ot (with a one) is a valid Mathematica name, which
is different from Plot (with an el).

So try,
m = 70; a = 0.08; x0 = 5000; g = 9.81;
x[t_] = x0 - m*Log[Cosh[t*Sqrt[g*a]/Sqrt[m]]]/a;
Plot[x[t], {t, 0, 60}]
