I looked at mine for maybe the second time ever. It certainly seems to be based off of my best 20-minute effort (which gives a pretty pathetic result because the nature of my outdoor rides). I'll keep it in the back of my mind the next time I have the opportunity for a good 20min effort (which might be a while).
