You can set a workout to be specified in meters or yards instead of the logged in users default unit of measure preference which is either metric (kms) or imperial (miles).
By default any distances are displayed to the logged in user in their own unit preference regardless of the unit preference prescribed by the coach.
It is now possible to override the default preference with either meters or yards.
This is great for swim or track sets that require more accurate distances for laps etc.
This can be specified at the workout library level, the training plan level and also the athlete calendar level.
This is currently available on the web apps only and will be added to the mobile apps shortly. The mobile apps will continue to display either km's or miles based on the users unit preference.
You can configure your unit preference from your user settings item in the top right hand profile menu.
