Welcome. I agree with the others. All exercise is personal and it is to be done at your pace. I don't know about stretching, but warming up is always a good thing to do. Spark suggests stretching after the muscles are warmed up, like at the end of the walk.
I like to start out fairly slow and then increase as I'm comfortable. I plan a walk that is a few minutes out and back and increase as I feel like I can. When I get home, I do some stretches to loosen up the muscles and prevent cramping.
I do track my walks and try to keep a streak going.
