    I find as I develop a good aerobic engine, though relatively easy I'm able to push the pace much quicker at low hr ranges such as 130-140bpm.

    Would that still be consider low intensity/light day or medium day?

    Depends on the duration, and current fitness level. Think of it as relative to the demands of your other training. For example, for a marathoner, a long run might be done at around that intensity, and it could be a very demanding training session. Whereas I personally might just do 20 minutes at that intensity, for some steady state work, and it would be a very light workout.

    Thanks for making it more clear.

    In terms of fitness level. My rhr is high 40s to low 50s

    As for duration, I can be exceeding up to 2hrs due to repitive drilling (sports specific: shadow boxing, footwork drills, light sparring, light bag work ect. Sometimes multiple of these sessions in a day.
