When training up for various races, I do different kinds of runs which I’d like to be able to track. Currently, the options I have are Race, Long Run, and Workout.

With this feature, I’d like to have the ability to set up custom types of run to better track the kind of workout run I did. For example, with this feature, I would track the following types:

  • Base / Easy
  • Recovery
  • Tempo
  • Intervals
  • Progression
  • Fartlek
  • Track

Long term, we can then use this data to quantify how much time we are spending in each run type which can then help determine over-training or just spending too much time in a specific type of workout.

Especially a generic "interval" type would be helpful to distinguish the (reason for a particular) performance in my opinion. I know intervals can be considered a workout, but I'd prefer to be more specific.

In addition, the checkbox for "commute" may be expanded with options such as marking a walk as "leisure" (when meandering with friends or family and not going for a pure point A to B walk) or "running errands" (not a commute, but walking from store to store, going for groceries or the pharmacy, etc).
