Does anyone understand splits_metric vs splits_standard?

The docs for `DetailedActivity` claim that these fields are only for runs, but I seem them on rides as well. And what I am seeing makes no sense. I would assume the first split in each collection would be equivalent to one another, i.e. cover the same physical space on Earth. But I'm seeing a metric split like:

 

{
    "distance": 1007.7,
    "elapsed_time": 171,
    "elevation_difference": 25.8,
    "moving_time": 170,
    "split": 1,
    "average_speed": 5.93,
    "average_grade_adjusted_speed": null,
    "average_heartrate": 138.79041916167665,
    "pace_zone": 0
}

 

And the "corresponding" standard split as:

 

{
    "distance": 1610.2,
    "elapsed_time": 249,
    "elevation_difference": 29.6,
    "moving_time": 248,
    "split": 1,
    "average_speed": 6.49,
    "average_grade_adjusted_speed": null,
    "average_heartrate": 140.66122448979593,
    "pace_zone": 0
}

 

These numbers do not match up. Presumably the `elapsed_time` would be equal if the splits were covering the same stretch of Earth.

Also, anyone know if `average_grade_adjusted_speed` is a float? This property isn't mentioned at all in the documentation.

The so called "standard" split is for every mile. Grade adjusted speed is decimal like every other speed and only calculated for runs.
