As a user who takes part in events and trains swimming, I would like the ability to change the activity type to workout/race.  So that I can better describe what type of activity it was.


Currently, you can only mark a swim activity with the commute activity type (who is commuting via swimming?!). It would be great if you could describe your activity as doing drills (and hence speed will be significantly slower), or race so I can accurately find it in my timeline/Calander.

For running and cycling we have the option to set the activities as "race", "workout" and "commute".  Yet, for swimming the only "activity" option is "commute"... I mean really???🤔. That's kinda dumb.  A swim can certainly be a "workout" or a "race".  The only activity option for yoga is "commute".  Uhm, really... Again, kind of stupid.  Yoga can be "stretching" or "strength training".  I'll bet you haven't really thought about assigning proper activities to any of your new "sport" options either.
