Hr Training Recommendations?

Hi all, I'm returning to running after ~10 year layoff. I'm a former 15:xx 5K runner, and was even running in the low 16s in my mid 30s. I'm now 47 and much older, bigger, and slower.

Running tanked in my late 30s, dropping down to ~15 miles per week due to chronic calf/knee/lower back pain. I'm 47 and have made several attempts t...
