Do workouts give you credit for miles ridden?

When you complete a workout do you get credit for the miles rode? The reason I am asking is that I would like to try a workout plan but one of the big things I track every year is total miles.

Thanks for any help you may have.

yes, your miles will be recorded. XP are awarded for time and type of workout segment though.

Yes, so if you’re doing a workout and you’re best off jumping on a TT bike on Tempus Fugit.

if it is busy and there are pacerbots on that route you can still get swept along in the draft in workout mode if not on a TT bike

True, but my guess is that on average it’s better to be TT-ing.

Plus you look cool.

I just want to clarify *completed workout segment. If you create a custom 2-hour workout block and hit the skip button halfway through, you won’t get any XP for that block, or the distance you rode during it.

Thanks so much for your help.

Virtual miles are fairly meaningless - if you just get dragged along by some monster robopacer group it doesn’t show a lot.

You really should be looking at the TSS and IF for the workouts.

Or even more obviously, compare the same distance Road to Sky vs. Tempus Fugit routes. What’s the point of tracking miles?
