In brief: Depends

Your question is dependent on a number of factors and there isn't a simple answer. People can have what's called silent ischemia depending on risk factors thus it is tough to tell withy certainty what is considered too strenuous for ones health. I would discuss this with your cardiologist. Define strenuous with them.
