Swim Moving Time

I really liked when a 1hr swim was recorded as 1hr by Strava...

I'm not a lifelong swimmer, but I'd venture to guess that most swimmers consider a 2pm-3pm pool workout to be a "1 hr" swim for logging purposes.  Swim workouts of course almost always include rest intervals, that is a given.

I find it very annoying that Strava subtracts any resting time and reports only the moving time.  For open water adventures or something, fine maybe, but in the pool? Doesn't make sense.

  • Any thoughts on this from other users or an employee? I really wish Strava swims were the way they used to be.

  • It definitely sux.  Especially when you are part of a club and it only counts moving time. For example my pool swim times are not showing up on the leaderboard.  There are several threads on here about moving time vs elapsed time (running) and lots of folks wish Strava would give us the option which time to count but so far Strava has done nothing about.

  • I have the opposite issue. I ONLY want to see moving time, so that at a glance I can see my average for the session. Instead, STRAVA currently shows the correct moving time, but includes rest or non-moving time when it calculates the average speed for the session.

  • If you want to know your average pace you need the moving time. I totally agree with Dave Cochrane,.  I Swim 2 km with 2 rest time of 1 minute each more or less and this will make my metric in stava meaning less as average speed is not accurate. At least they could show both but calculate the speed using only moving time. It really annoy me.

  • I think I may have have found a FIX guys!

    Upload the swim activity. Change the activity type to Run, then you get the additional option to choose Run Type as a Race. Save. By doing to, you toggle from moving time to elapsed time.

    Then edit the activity again and change it back to a Swim. Save. Somehow, it keeps the elapsed time and does not default back to moving time.

    (oddly though, it doesn't work perfectly as moving is still <> elapsed, but moving had been updated to a time much closer to the actual time.). Anyway, not flawless, but worth giving it a shot in case it works for you :)

  • je suis d'accord avec Dave. C'est très énervant que Strava affiche une pace fausse. Dans le temps total est compté le temps de discussion au bord du bassin et lorsque je sort de l'eau pour diverses raisons. 

    Je vais essayer la solution de Ira
