Your pace has a HUGE impact on your %. If you speed up and maybe even pass your Mii pacer, your % score will drop for sure. A steady pace is the biggest factor for higher scores.

Hi - I also hold my controller. I tend to get higher percentages than you do. I really move my arms with wide motions when I "run" . Didn't know if this was doing anything but I guess it does. My question is "is the mii pacing us or if we run will our % pick up" I usually just try to be at an even pace but wondering how much my pace effects %?
Good luck

I tried it with the remote in my bra and found it to be uncomfortable as it jabbed my sternum but it was the best score I've gotten EVER.

Why do we try so hard to be like everyone else, when we were born to be unique?

Thanks for all of the input. Placing it in my shirt worked best. Weird but true.

Thanks for the information I don't like putting the controller in my pocket so I just hold it. tonight I am going to try putting it in my waistband and see how I do.

Hi!

The trick to higher scores in the running exercises is definitely running a nice steady pace. If you speed up / slow down much, the score is lower. I sometimes like to follow the different dogs or cats when I do the run; that makes it interesting but it also reduces your score a little bit as you have to speed up to 'catch' the critter you want to follow.

You also have to have your controller in the right spot. I see you both mention holding it, which I know others do as well. Personally, I usually get the best scores when I tuck the controller into the back of my waistband so it is snug and rests on the top of my rear. Some others have reported good success with putting the controller into their bra; I don't find that comfortable so I do not use that method.

I know we all like good scores; but, please don't let it frustrate you if your scores are low. Remember it is FABULOUS that you are up and running regardless of how the Wii scores it!!!

I am wondering too as my percentages are very average.

I've recently noticed that running less faster can improve my rate. Also, holding it seems to lower my score. Most of the time, I don't have any pockets, so I put it in my bra, or my legging.

I use Island Run often, but my percentages are super low (like 40%). Does anyone know what I may be doing wrong. I try to jog at a nice even pace. I often hold the contoller because my workout gear doesn't have pants. Any advice would be great! Thanks.
