In brief: Supply mismatch

Can have mi at rest if a vessel thrombosis.
But if narrow and heart wants more oxygen during exercize, the supply may be limited and cause angina-heart pain, or myocardial infarction as next step. To alleviate your concern, see cardiologist and do monitored exercize-stress testing.

In brief: Anxiety

Yes. You have nailed it.
People who die from exercise have heart disease. It is very unlikely to occur in someone your age or with good health.
