That counts alright, it’s low end Z1 or recovery pace. The response may not be “significant” but it counts as part of your total aerobic base.
When I train by myself I usually will average 145-160 bpm (my AeT is 164, max HR is 202). I occasionally hike with a friend who does not train for endurance sports. To keep a pace suitable for them, my heart rate during this activity is extremely low (average 110 over 2.5 hours) – is this so low that I shouldn’t count this as training, or am I still stressing my body enough to elicit a significant training response?
