Hoppylike visits Academy

AO: Academy

When: 10/26/2021

QIC: Cookie

PAX (4): Cookie, Devito, Mayhem, Stroller


YHC announced on Slack for a pre-blast that we would be leaving campus and to bring a headlight.  4 PAX answered the call and after a quick disclaimer, YHC mentioned that the beatdown had no plan, no theme and no frills aside from miles and pain stations.  With the Windjammer on Fridays, YHC rarely makes Hoppylike these days so I figured I would kind of bring it here.  Off into the gloom we went.


Ha, no warmup at the Academy.

The Thang:

We set out toward D-TOWN Alpha stopping on the main lawn for 4 corners.  Next up was Brook St Park for wind sprints.  Then off to the Alpha Loop stopping a few times on the loop for BTTW and other fun activities.  Once we reached Avalon we turned on Westside and couldn’t pass up on the pull-up bars.  At this point I warned the PAX that the next segment would be more like Hoppylike so we ran back to downtown taking the long way back.  Once we reached City Hall, we stopped for some Mary, then made our way back to the flag.  From there, we had 15 minutes left for a fun routine called Stadium Blimps.

  • 10 Burpees, run the stadium steps up, down, over, up, down, over, etc.
  • 20 Lunges – run steps
  • 30 Imperial – run steps
  • 40 Merkins – run steps
  • 50 Plank Jacks – run steps
  • 60 Squats – run steps

No time left, we moseyed back to the flag for COT



Thankful, grateful and blessed to have this group.  Save the date for Santa Ruck Dec 11th.  Need volunteers this year.

-Always an honor to lead.
