    "I'm lucky I had a history of working out"

    Well, working out wasn't just something that happened to you.  You may not have spent those years working out solely for the purpose of surviving a heart attack, but you're the one that made it all happen.  There's as much agency as luck here, I'd say.

    Or maybe, to paraphrase Pasteur, luck favors the prepared body.
