base it on how you feel. Do you feel like it's a light workout, or is it really pushing you? Are you sweating--no/little, or heavy? Are you breathing a little harder? Has your heart rate gone up--a little or a lot? Does it make you tired (in a good way, but still a bit tired)?

The way to figure that out would be to find out what your target heart rate is. Then check to see if you are in the right zone. I wear a heart rate monitor so if I'm slacking I can look at my watch and kick it up.
