Common Mistakes:

Many users want to set up a cumulative goal but instead set up a single distance goal. For example, they want to run 500mi in the next year, but instead set up a goal to go for a 500mi run

When setting up your cumulative distance goal on the app, select "Total Distance" not "Longest Distance"

When settings up your cumulative distance goal on the web, select "Cumulative Distance" not "Distance"
