I’ve seen a number of posts from folks who are genuinely upset when their speed and distance calculated or displayed in the app doesn’t match their expectations or their efforts when workouts have been done in the past.
To me, similar to elevation, since the workouts in SYSTM are NOT an attempt at a simulation of the outside world (though arguably some of the pro-rides could be seen that way) these metrics are meaningless and I never show them on screen when doing SUF/SYSTM vids nor am I fussed by the results reported post workout and synced to Strava. However, it is obviously really very important for some people to see these metrics and to have them recorded, reported, and as accurate as can be calculated.
I am wondering, if any of the Coaches or SUF/SYSTM/wahoo scientists could weigh in on this issue and maybe even write a post of their own on the topic. I think it would be welcomed.
