Running sessions and recording data

Does anyone have a workaround to upload distance data to strava when doing the running sessions?

Heart rate data gets exported but calories aren’t counted and distance isn’t recorded. I’d rather not do a separate manual strava activity unless there’s no other option.

Many thanks

Hi @David_Atkinson,
If you have your data in .tcx format which can be exported from Garmin, you can hand edit the file to include the meters you ran.
Near the end of the file look for the

Distance meters 0000.0000. /DistanceMeters

Where DistancMeters is surrounded by < > (this program thinks I’m writing xml and parses them)
Line about 40 lines from the end.

Change the value to your known distance, save it and upload to Strava.

It’s round about but gets the job done.
