I want to walk a half marathon. My city's marathon is next fall, so I have plenty of time to get ready. I found various training plans online that range from 12-16 weeks, but that's really not what my question is about. I'm wondering, since I have almost a year till then, what should I do be doing now? Does it matter? I'm in good health but haven't exercised consistently lately. Also, general walking-a-half advice is very welcome!

The Pilgrimage of St James, also known as the Pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela - involves walking for about 800km across northern spain. I've seen a few faq's online, but what i'd really like is some advice from a fellow mefite who has actually done all or part of this trail.
Also, some general advice on hiking very long distances would be appreciated also.
