Myself and most of my coworkers have adopted the 80/20 methodology and are linked on Garmin connect. I’ve noticed that in my workout summaries, my runs show up as “XXXXX County running” while theirs show up as the actual run name “RFR23 Running”.
It hasn’t bothered me much over the last year or so, but now that a few of us are training for an ultra, it would be nice to both allow them to see which training run I did, as well as see it for myself if I an reviewing my history.
I do initiate the training runs from the watch by clicking the run app, then starting the run that pops up for that given day.
Of note, I have deleted and re added the plans multiple times to no avail, and the problem has followed me across 3 different phones.
Finally, I have android while most of them run Apple devices, so that is what they believe the problem is. Either way, I would like to fix this if possible, any help would be great.
Log into Garmin Connect, look in the upper right-hand corner for your Profile & Account Settings, select Account Settings, then select Display Preferences from the left side of the window. You should see Activity Name with a dropdown arrow, select Workout Name (when available). This should take care of the issue.
Thank you so much, since doing this all of my runs have been labeled correctly. And here I was doing pre-warm up, warm-ups and wasting tons of focus on trying to ensure my heart rate gets into zone as quickly as possible with zone changes to see if that would fix the naming convention. You saved the day! Thanks again!
