Camino de Santiago/Spain- help me develop my plan by Wednesday

So I've decided I want to do the Camino de Santiago (thanks for the suggestion in one of my previous questions). I'll be trying to do the Camino Frances. I'm really worried about being alone and also potential for snowy weather. Because of the snowy weather concern, I've decided to start in Pamplona instead of Saint Jean Pied de Port, which I guess puts me past one range of hills. I don't understand the path very well- are there other places where this would be a concern?
So my plan is to just start on the trek alone and try to find other people to stick to. I'm worried that this will be hard to do at this time of the year since there'll be less people since I guess this is mostly a summer thing. I really don't want to walk alone- I have fears of being attacked.
If I don't feel comfortable when starting (as I feel pretty anxious about this right now) then I've decided that I'll have a bunch of back up plans for other things to do. I'm thinking horseriding lessons as I've always wanted to learn that, and cooking lessons.
Please share with me your thoughts about my concerns and also please send me any links you have to relatively affordable back-up plans in Spain, hopefully with a fitness element. I'm leaving Wednesday and coming back 4.5 weeks later, late April. Hopefully unharmed. :(
I know there are more relevant forums for the Camino part of this question but you are like my internet family that I trust more.
