Wii Fit Plus Aerobics Part 2-3: Basic Run, Island Lap Routes

Part 2-3 of our Wii Fit Plus Aerobics Playthrough continues on to the Island Lap, my personal favorite from the Basic Runs, and in all honesty one of my favorite activities on the entire disc.  This is, as you guessed, a basic run, just at a considerably longer distance.  Due to the lenght of the runs I had to break it down into 3 installments, let's take a look:

Wii Fit Plus Aerobics Playthrough Part 2-3A: Basic Run, Island Lap Routes 1-3

Route Break Down
1: Guide Mii, Island Lap

5: Tan Dog, Red Collar, Beach
6: Black Dog, Red Collar, Castle
7: Spotted Cat, Blue Collar, Ruins

Take all the good things you find in the Long Routes and increase them two-fold.  The Island Lap Routes are great!  These runs last anywhere from about 6-10 minutes and are a great way to get in a quick cardio workout.  You can control the pace to establish this as a warm-up exercise, intense cardio exercsie, or even a light cool down after a long Wii Fit Plus routine wraps up...

As with most unlockables, I do reccommend you work your way up to the Island Laps.  Make sure to stretch before hand, perhaps with some Yoga poses that don't require the Balance Board. 

With so many routes, this run really never gets old.  It is always something new and different that you notice when you make these laps.  How many people fall down?  Which Miis wave at you?  What was your score and how did it compare to last time?

I make it a point to run the Island Lap almost every night, that is how much I like it.  I try to do the Cobra, Bridge, Spinal Twist, and Shoulder Stand before-hand.  If I am busy, I still like to try and fit in one of the Island Laps.  I have played almost 1,000 days and this one still hasn't lost its' edge.  It truly is a great exercise.  It is long enough to be a challenge and get your heart rate up, yet short enough to not be cumbersome or repetitive...a perfect blend of fun and function!

I hope that you will enjoy the Island Laps as much as I do...Finding all the different routes is a real challenge, and keeps things interesting...if you feel stuck in a routine, just try a new route.  They are so diverse it really does spice things up!
