Strava - I hate you!

Strava just got a run timing very wrong.

I just ran my local 5km and Strava registered it as 7min+ splits, I run 6 on an average day and 5 when in monster mode - Tonight I was in monster mode! It also missed out 2 segments.

I hate it when Strava gets it wrong, it's out there as a poor run and Stava says so, therefore it's a fact haha

I also hate when it shows that hill you scorched up as being either level or even downhill. Gah.

What import device are you using? A 'friend' was recently boasting of his high mileage and super speed – now I know Strava (via his phone) is recording about 20% more distance. It might not be Strava that is at fault.

On a different note. If you don't need the adulation of others Training Peaks (free or paid) is a good record keeper.

Yeah since I stopped using my iphone I've had to up my mileage... 

Occasionally my watch just will not send the data through and it disappears. Very frustrating.

I use a Suunto Ambit 3 to record my runs and the uploaded data to Strava always adds a few seconds to the average pace. My Suunto told me I ran 6km tonight at 4.35 per km but Strava shows it as 4 seconds per km slower. When I show my times as a race it adds about 10 seconds per km which is very annoying . My bike computer (Garmin 130) transfers data to Strava to the exact second.

What device are you using? I assume it doesn’t connect directly to Strava but uploads to a server which converts your watch file into a GPX file that Strava understands. That server is probably altering the data and then Strava is altering it again.

Just my phone - I only need the routes logging. Look at my times, I don't need/want any adulation haha

Aaaand breathe!

Apologies to the 6 folks that disliked my original post, I felt robbed! I'm feeling much better today though.

I'll just have to get out and do it again. :-D

It also has a habit of stealing a few metres from the route, so the pb 10k comes in as 9.99 and doesn't count
