I like the weekly relative effort data!

But I do not like that it is set to zero at the beginning of the week. This usually means that in the first half of the week, when I have just done a few activities and I have not yet reached the lower level of my optimal range, the comment is always that my effort this week was below average.

I think it would be more useful if the relative effort in the current week is based on the last seven days instead, i.e. a rolling sum.

Logical idea, but I also sometimes like starting the week at zero. How about providing options, such as start from zero on X day, weekly rolling average, or rolling average over X number of days. Then everyone can set it as they like. 

Regarding the automated comments, it's nice to have the encouragement and the reminders, but it seems like they could be more appropriate (even if still automated). For example, instead of "your effort is below," something like "You are building a nice effort for the week. Keep it low if you are resting or recovering."

The work-week kind of display we have currently make no sense - it doesn’t guide you to the right level of the effort until the end of the week. Really stupid really. 7-day (or 5 or 10-day…) rolling sum (i.e. sum of last 7 days) would help a lot more!

Thank you for posting this.  I also made the same suggestion, "Change "Weekly Effort" to "Last 7 days Effort"

This sakes no sense.  I hope Strava changes this to make the weekly effort a useful tool.

I am so frustrated by Strava telling me I am below my weekly Effort when I usually do the major activity on Saturday. Searched the internet for a way to turn it off. Found and upvoted this instead.
