My current default running is labeled as "Running - General", but I'd like to change that to "Running - Easy" as a default. Is there a way to do this on the website?

Thanks for any assistance!

Not sure it’s possible to change that. Perhaps Lord Fetch himself will confirm or deny this when he returns from Fetchpoint duties.

It defaults to the first chosen category on your category list - you can "choose/unchoose" categories, but you can't re-order them.

So you could "unchoose" all the categories in the list before "Running - Easy", and it would then default to "Running - Easy" since it was first in the list, but if you wanted to actually choose one of the options that appear in the list before it, eg "Running - General" you couldn't do that without going and editing the category list.

To edit the category list, from the Add Training screen, below the category drop-down box there is a "Edit your category list" field.

Hope that all made sense !

Ooh thanks. I’d forgotten you could do that.

I just edit the type after the fact ~ when I upload a Run Walk it arrives as Run-General. But then I often need to edit kit choice anyway, so an additional 'click scroll click' is no biggie :-)

Got something to say?
