I finally re-tried that Island cycling expert course on the Wii fit plus. I did my yoga routine and taught I would give the game another chance and take it slowly.
What happened last time was that after I finished my work-out I decided to try that same course but I was already tired. I went up that big mountain and couldn’t find anymore flags so I gave up and never tried it until today
So I today I started very slowly because I new it would be a long ride. Instead of going up the mountain right away I went for the easy flags at first and finally it didn’t felt that bad. I kept the mountain ascension for the end and it didn’t seemed as hard as last time. When I got the last flag I thought I did pretty good but then I couldn’t find the way back down and kept coming back a the same spot. I even threw myself off a cliff only to be brought back at the top again. loll. I felt like an idiot and was laughing at myself. Really, who gets lost on the Wii island except me…at least I had a bit of a view…
When I finally found the right trail I got at the finish line to find out that I had been biking for 50 minutes. It was not easy and I was getting tired. It seemed a bit long like 20 minutes maybe but 50 was a huge surprise. I guess the game served it’s purpose of keeping me entertain so I don’t notice that I am exercising for that long. The cherry on the Sunday, a beautiful 169 calories burned. With my yoga routine and other small games I reached 265 calories so I am ok with getting lost.
