Subject: Swim metrics- yds vs. meters
My lap swim pool is 25 meters. My Garmin is always different than my BT workout plan because yds are shorter. Any chance there is a way to do the swim workouts in meters? I can't figure out how if so. Thanks!

If you set your default units to meters in your training log settings THEN import a plan, it will bring them in as meters - but you have to reimport the plan.  Though for the sake of the plan, we treat them equal as the distance isn't that far off and with all of the swim overdistance training, an exact conversion is messy-looking and unnecessary.
