Question: How to reset workout goal to "Open"

My Apple Watch insists on a 4,000 calorie goal for my outdoor walk. How do I change back to "open" goal? Everytime I hit the three little dots in the upper right corner, and then hit the "open" option, it just starts running with the same 4,000 calorie goal. Very frustrating.

I have the same issue with Outdoor Run. For some reason it shows 5:00 even though I changed the goal to zero. Open Goal is gone and 5:00 shows in its place. It appears to have nothing to do with the goal inside the workout as my goal inside the workout is always the previous time of a run and not 5:00. Frustrating.

Note that Apple advises that you should not force restart your Apple Watch (by pressing and holding both buttons) unless it is unresponsive and cannot be restarted normally:
