Plan your route to start at the point that's half way between you. By the time you meet up you will be nicely warmed up and you can encourage and push each other to do your best. Walking back home alone gives plenty of time for cool down too

I walk a mile on my 15 minute morning break at 11:00 a.m. and 2 miles during my half hour lunch at 1:00 p.m. That way if I'm tired when I get home, I know I've already walked at least 3 miles during the day and I don't beat myself up for not getting in some exercise.
I walk with a friend three days a week first thing in the morning. Even when I'm tired and don't want to get out of bed early to go walk, I feel obligated to do it so I don't leave my friend "hanging." We're planning on moving it up to 5 days a week in June since the weather will be nicer. :)
