According to Strava Support,The weekly totals were part of our goals subscription feature which has now been moved to the Training tab.
All athletes can find the summary bar at the top of the ‘You’ feed on mobile.

While Strava seems to have eliminated weekly progress in the app for the free version, the widget for Android users is showing weekly mileage, for the time being. You can still have it on the home screen, as per a Redditor, and check your weekly details at a glance.
