I think my main issue is with my heart rate. Even on the treadmill, I'll set it for say 1.5 mph and my heart rate literally jumps up to the 140's. That's like barely a brisk walk. So if anyone has any ideas on how to build up a tolerance towards running while at the same time not stressing out my heart rate, then I'm all ears.

Per doc's orders - I can exercise but she does not want me taking my HR past 150.

Do you like riding bikes or swimming? You might be able to do some biking or a stationary bike for a long time without getting your heart rate too high. Or jazzercize or something like that.  You can probably I assume that it's okay to sometime take your heartrate above 150 but she probably doesn't want it maintained there for long lengths of time. I mean if you jog a 5k, your heart rate will probably be above it for a good long while. I'd probably ask for clarification from your doctor. 

I've never had heart problems so I'm not really sure. Wouldn't want to do anything to risk a heart attack.

I will ask her. I love swimming, but the gym I belong to doesn't have a pool. I tried yoga, sweated my ass off but it was too much on my hands and knees. My knees ended up getting bruised for two weeks.
