Green light on after saving workout

I've noticed that after I save a workout using Apple's workout app, the green light stays on. However, using a third party weight lifting workout app, the sensor lights don't stay on after saving the session like it does with Apple's app. During this experience, I also see the green running person icon on the watch face.

I could get the light and icon to turn off by opening a series of other apps on the watch, it usually takes about three other apps to load before the light and icon turn off. I believe this is what ends up fully closing out the workout app for some reason. This is a bit annoying to do this and if I fail to, it drains the battery quite quickly.

I thought that maybe with yesterday's latest update (2.2.1), I would see a fix, but a test this morning revealed that it remains to be an issue.

I wonder if any one else may be experiencing this or similar or if anyone my know of a fix.

Thank you
