Hi 

I’d like to get started training for a 5k. I am 54 years old, and overweight. I was once a runner in my 20s and early 30’s. Any advice?  I’m also afraid my heart isn’t ready for this, ie I'm afraid of having a heart attack.

I think the most important thing to remember is that your health is more important than the app's schedule. If you feel like running is not something you can do, I think you should walk, and only run the minutes you feel safe doing so. You can also do speed walking.

You should talk to your doctor. Running is probably good for your health, and I know walking is.
