Start training today! Should be awesome. You'll be amazed by how quickly you gain fitness in walking. I would start by walking out from home for 10 minutes and then walking back. Doesn't matter how far you go, doesn't matter how fast you go. Just walk out for 10 and then walk back.

Increase your pace gradually as well as the time you walk. Push yourself a little bit, but not too much. Walk with your friend when you can - get out and enjoy!

4 miles is really easy...my husband and I walk farther than that on our 2 hour walks we like to take on the L.A. river horse trail. it's more like 7 plus miles and it's not very hard, especially when you have company! Try walking a mile each day (or every other for a while) then go up from there. It will be cake!
