I’m 45 years old and trying to get in better shape. My son tore his acl last year and is trying to get back in shape for football season. I made him a promise that I would do this with him. The problem is I can only go about 30 seconds until my heart rate hits about 160 or 170 and I have to walk. Is this normal?? Should I just keep doing week 1 until I can go the full 60 seconds??

The number one thing to remember is that your health supersedes anything the app wants you to do.

I am not a doctor, but I would recommend that you research to see what your target heart rate should be for your age and health. To me, it seems high. If I were in your shoes, I would do fast walking instead of running, until I was able to run with a healthy heart rate.
