Maybe I don't need to see my Speed.

I think there should be an option to hide your speed progress so that you can really focus solely on improving your accuracy.
If you practice while focusing on improving your accuracy, you will also improve your speed or at the very least you won't waste time trying to correct mistakes.
Seeing your speed after each test and then seeing the leaderboards with people doing 150WPM pushes you to try to type faster and if you force yourself to type faster, you are gonna make more mistakes, which will lower your speed.
It's like trying to lose weight and checking your weight everyday. It makes you focus on the wrong thing. You should focus on improving your diet and doing regular exercise not counting the kilos you lost or gained after each meal/workout.
I know it's important to see your progress it can boost your willingness to keep working.
I want to be able to practice everyday on accuracy and maybe once a month or a week, i check my speed progress.
