New Run Activity Pages

Please leave us your comments and feedback for the new Run Activity pages here.

Great news, runners: your new run activity page on Strava.com is now live. We spoke to tons of you about what is important when viewing your activities and those of others, and have incorporated your needs and experiences as runners into this new page. 

Some of the new features:

  • Social Bar: We added a social bar to the top of the page, putting your activity title, description, comments, kudos, Instagram photos, and other athletes on your run front and center.
  • Sharing Module:  Easily share your run to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, email, or embed in your blog from the sharing module located at the top, left-hand corner of the page.
  • Key Stats: Distance, time, average pace and elevation are located between the Social Bar and Elevation & Performance Chart. Your mile/km splits from your run are located on the right-hand side of your activity map.
  • Top Results: Get a snapshot of your achievements for the run, including any goals you have accomplished, PRs for best efforts, and segment achievements. 
  • Elevation & Performance Chart: We’ve vastly improved the visual interaction for reviewing and scrubbing all your activity details. Use the cursor to look at your pace, elevation, grade adjusted pace and grade at any point during your run.
  • Premium Analysis: We've rolled out changes to the Pace analysis and distribution, including the new analysis specific to a race. Now you can designate a run activity as a "Race" and get interactive and granular data such as race splits and projected finish times. 
  • Segment Efforts, Stats & Comparison: We’ve optimized the Segment Efforts within your activity so you can quickly scan your most meaningful achievements. We display key stats of your effort along with your leaderboard ranking. And when you’re looking at another athlete’s segment effort, you’ll be able to compare your PR against theirs.

Some of the changes: There are aspects of the run activity pages that are not currently available, with some of these aspects scheduled to return, redesigned, at a later date:

  • Viewing the Performance Chart with 'time' as the x-axis: The new performance chart is set with 'distance' as the x-axis, and we plan to re-add the option to switch to 'time' in the near future (coming soon). 
  • Lap data from a Garmin device: Will now be visible underneath the Segments view in the left sidebar for Free and Premium users.
  • Segment Comparison: The ability to compare your segment effort with your PR and/or the CR for the segment has been removed, and will return after a redesign incorporating the features from http://raceshape.com/.
  • Run "Score": The run intensity score that appeared previously under the Analysis tab is no longer available, but will return when the calculation is more accurate. 
  • GAP for mile splits: We're currently working on our algorithm for GAP. Once the algorithm is improved, GAP split data will be displayed on our new Premium Pace & Race Analysis pages.
  • Best Efforts: The technology available used to generate Best Efforts was not up to our high standard of accuracy. Due to this, we will continue to display any PRs you receive for the next few weeks, but then we will turn off Best Efforts in its current form. Over the next few months, we'll continue to explore innovative and relevant ways to bring this feature back to all users once it has reached our high standards of accuracy. We apologize for this change.

Some Known Issues:

  • FIXED Performance Issues: We're hard at work improving the performance issues that have been reported. Improvements coming soon.
  • FIXED Hidden Segments: Hidden segments will be re-adding this week (we still need to add the ability to hide and unhide segments)
  • FIXED Elevation Correction for your Run: Will be re-added very soon.

  • Strava - Have you removed the HR data from Laps again?

    If you've continued to ignore EVERYTHING above but dedicated development time to remove ANOTHER feature...............................

  • We all know that GPS data is not accurate, why did you kill the best efforts? We were happy with what we had.

    I also want my best efforts back. :-( ... When talking about that: Why not introducing it to Rides, too? ;-)

  • No idea what people are talking about regarding best efforts... I still have it. Unless it's been so long that I've forgotten what it used to be like?

    Pile of poo in totality, but the 'best efforts' query makes no sense to me.

     

    Has everyone else lost HR data from laps?

  • HR is there, you need to turn on the button under the graph but doesn't have the "labels" on the y-axis. You need to pass your  mouse over to see it.  It's hidden! For me was freezing on Chrome but works on FF.

    Best efforts for workouts are gone. The ones you can access in your profile are the best efforts (performance) of all times, not for each workout by itself.

  • HR is gone from the laps on all of my runs now. Also, the elevation and grade percentage have been showing as zero for several weeks now (for the laps).

  • HR and elevation are once again missing from the lap data.  I thought they'd fixed that but it looks like you can add that to the things that it's taking them an alarmingly long time to address. 

    The 'best effort' used to be something that you got for every run.  It pulled the best kilo, mile, 5k, 10k, 10mile etc out of the data, albeit with a flawed algorithm that did need work and could miss the best, and gave it to you.  Now it only shows that if your best effort ranks amongst your top 3 personal performances all time and provides no way of seeing *where* in a run that effort occurred. 

    I think they're in over their heads.  I work in software.  I know that changes take time and that programming is difficult and you may not have the manpower to get things done. 

    I also know that if you deliver a product that is clearly worse than a previous version, you will lose customers and lose reputation and your best bet is to go back to a version that worked better.   The "alpha" that we're being guinea-pigged on is substantially worse than the old version.  The only responsible thing to do is to roll back and work on your mess behind the scenes. You've got enough feedback to know what you've screwed up and now you're just looking like amateurs.  (And STRAVA, it's just insulting to pretend that you're not using the runners as a test of the new format )

  • My last comments about it:

    It became slower to load everything even on the iphone after the new iphone app update.

    The graphs have been freezing using Chrome and with FF if you leave open with other windows freezes the browser too.

    HR only on the graphs is not good enough, we miss to have them on the tables together with splits and segments.

    Maybe remove this animation from the graphs when you turn on and off the buttons. to help the system to run faster.

    Too many windows and clicks isn't cool! We want to spend time looking at out data not navigating from one window to another.

    I hope you are able to find good people to fix these issues.

    I used to love Strava because it was the fastest tool to load everything now is pretty much close all the other crappy tools available. Good Luck!

  • STRAVA STOP CLOSING TICKETS WITHOUT SOLVING THE ISSUE

    Not that I think there is any more chance of this being read, but Ellie, you closed a ticket where I asked if Lap Data had been removed. I needed to reply to this to ask why it had been removed in the past ten days, when it had previously been removed, then added.

    WHAT ARE YOU ALL DOING?

    Your graphs are useless, USELESS. As in, they may as well not be there.

    The lap data remained useable as if I ran a track session I could look at lap pace vs lap effort. You've taken it away. Again.

    The run pages are now only useful for; Time, Distance, Average Pace, Average Heart rate.... EVERY single other website, including my Garmin watch, gives me this information in a better format.

    I'm actually annoyed that I'm getting this annoyed about it.

  • @Mark M - Agreed. Better than it's ever been, post 'update'. Useable data again.

    Though it still lacks elevation data.

    A few small revisions and this could be as good as it was, pre update.

    Actually, I'll be honest, looking again, with elevation added, thats better than it's ever been. One, single page, showing data and a pair of visualisations. No scrolling needed. It's lightweight, but ti works. IF the elevation data goes in there.

  • So GAP is there as an option on the main overview chart but not in the laps table?

  • I see that the black lines over the graph when "scrubbing" (in Firefox) has been fixed, so that is a welcome improvement.

    The pace graph is still inverted and although I'm a physical simulation programmer - that means I'm really happy with numbers and graphs - I still find it hard to get my head around the fact that higher up the graph means I'm going slower.  I do look at Strava rides frequently which are the "normal" way around, obviously using the old, easy to read graph.  Maybe that makes it harder because there is a mental switch needed every time I view a run.  Also, as people have mentioned many times, this inverted pace graph also leads to bad problems with scaling if there is any really slow point during the run.  There is still no scale for pace or heart rate when heart rate is switched on.

    The segments appear in a map with a very small width and an extremely small height, and heart rate graph is still not visible on the small graph beside the tiny segment map.  The switch to show heart rate at all in the segment graph (when "scrubbing" only) is still only available on the "overview" page.

    By the way - most minor bug of all - on the "Edit your run" screen, the text "99 years ago" is still visible.  This is in Firefox.

  • Great to see the grid view of segments and laps - vital for segment/normal interval sessions.

    One small observation is that for (Garmin) laps would be good to see the fractional seconds. If say you were doing shortish reps on track, 1 sec is quite a large percentage of the rep and a say 49.5 300 and 50.4 are more useful to know than just "50".

    The starred segments thing have just noticed which also seems will be very useful. It seems I can now quickly tag the ones that look interesting and/or need to get myself up higher on the board! Sort of had that with goals but this seems more concise.

    Now if only that pace graph flipped over, the Y axis was not dominated by rests, the segment graph was bigger and showed HR, segment comparisons was back, best efforts came back better...

    But can't deny that this is a step in the right direction with at least some new functionality as well as restoring/improving some other stuff.

  • Sorry, I'm a bit late on this, but just looking at my first run for a while and I can't understand where some very basic and obvious information has gone.  Why don't you show speed?  Does anyone genuinely want to see their speed represented as the rather abritrary "minutes per 5k" rather than the kilometres or miles per hour as shown on every GPS device ever?  Also, you show grade and GAP, but not "distance elapsed".  I can't quite work out why you chose these over the ones used by everything and everyone else.

    Finally, when you get a PR for a distance, I'm sure you used to be able to click on it and see where on your run it was.  Has this been removed?

  • Best efforts!!
    I used to be able to see best 100m, 200, 400, mile, 5k etc for each individual run!
    This was a feature I used a lot!
    Come on strava, ADD functionality! Not take it away!

  • Here's my conspiracy theory thoughts on the matter:  Maybe Strava got pinged for using some algorithms, or map data, that they didn't license.  Possibly they cut a deal whereby existing pages didn't need to be changed, but any revisions to the site had to remove the offending content.  The result being the massive loss of functionality at the same time as the design changes were implemented  (I do like the overall look, but I miss the functionality of the old site more.)  If this was all bounded by some kind of NDA, it all makes sense.

    However, given the glacially slow rate at which improvements are being made, I think I am maybe giving them too much benefit of the doubt.  The sad thing is there's still not even another site out there that's picked up the slack and doing what Strava _used_ to do.

    I'm currently syncing my data to garmin, runkeeper and training peaks as well as strava.  I'm not entirely happy with any of them.

  • Well that's wrong because they are still using the exact same code that they've disabled on the run pages across all other activities, including cycling which I hope they have seen fit not to change.

  • A simple (non-strava) solution to some of the problems is to use Sportstracks to analyse your results. It isn't web based and there aren't leaderboards but by adding a couple of plugins you can easily see your best efforts over whatever distance you want and compare your own efforts on different trails.

  • To expand on the last comment, SportTracks is now web based as well. 

    http://www.sporttracks.mobi/

    That will sync with the software on your computer. The web based version is relatively new and the software is far superior, but it will now sync up with the web. For deep analysis I'd do it on the computer with the various plugins, but for quick stat review the web based version is fine. I highly recommend it. I use Strava only for segments.

  • Strava keeps getting worse; they made another recent update to the run interface to remove the "grade" data as well.  It used to be you could mouse over any point on the route and see how steep it is/was at that point but that useful functionality has also now been removed.

    It is also rather not cool that Strava refuses to provide a link to download all your activity gpx files even though it is super easy for them to do, as in about two lines of code..  For example using Chrome Browser, if you want to download all your activities as gpx files you can go to the activities list view:

    http://app.strava.com/athlete/training

    .. open the Chrome Browser "developer tools -> Javascript console" (ctrl-shift-J) and paste the following two lines of javascript and hit enter to download the gpx files for all the activities listed in the table:

    <snip>

    x=document.getElementsByClassName("drop-down-menu");for(var i=0;i<x.length;i++){
    window.open("/activities/"+x[i].id.split("-")[1]+"/export_gpx");

    </snip>

    That will simply loop over every activity shown in the table and open a window/download each as gpx.  Note, that will only download the activities shown in the table, so if you want to download all your activities simply run the javascript above, downloading all 20 activities shown on the table, click to the arrow at the bottom to load the next page of 20 activities and run the above javascript again (press up arrow in developer tools javascript console, hit enter).. repeat until you have all your activities saved locally.

  • Thanks Brennan, that was just the post I needed to motivate me to backup my data.

    It's worth pointing out that as long as you have your original data, there is nothing Strava provides that can't be recreated by someone or something else, at any point in the future, including all those distance-based PRs that Strava for some bizarre reason doesn't let us examine.

    So people, don't trust anyone else with your precious data - back it up now!
