It’s well before 06:00 AM. I’m sitting on my indoor bike. Somewhat motivated by the last visit to my scale a day before. Thinking that a longer distance ride may be something nice. Riding through an simulated France. And indeed … it’s a nice long ride while listing to music and podcasts. The counter stops at 75 km a little bit less two and a half hours later. You visit the scale again. Pleased about the number on the display, well knowing that it’s a lot of water that is missing. But the difference matters to me, not the absolute number. And I weighted myself a day before under the same conditions.

Looking into the Garmin Connect Portal, just to find this:

Unproductive? UNPRODUCTIVE? What the …? What do you mean with unproductive? At least produced 75km? I know what the system wants to tell me, but couldn’t you have named it differently? Unproductive? Honestly, dear Garmin, we really need to talk about how you motivate people.
