Sunnyside Thanksgiving: your jellybeans are served

Introduction: Sunnyside fell on Thanksgiving weekend this year which is kind of fun. For the PA X available this weekend who could convince their M’s and 2.0’s to work out in the cold I promised hot cider-teeria (all sold out, so hot chocolateeria) following the workout, and was smarter this time in that I had […]

Jedi beat down (I mean training)

INTRO: Haven’t Q’d for a while. Other noble PAX have answered the call, and I’ve got a bit of writer’s block for Sunnyside Q’s, which are more demanding since some element of fun is required. My daughter F3 Schneebly came up with the idea for a Star Wars themed Q, so she gets credit (or […]

Sunnyside World Cup

Introduction: I usually have a theme for these workouts, but today I’ve really got nothin’. The US Women’s World Cup team won yesterday to make it into the semifinals, so there’s that. My daughter F3 Schneebly came up with a good idea for crab vs bear soccer so we’ll do that at the conclusion. I’m sure […]

Summer Blockbluster Mash-up

Introduction: YHC has been out of commission for a while, sadly a recurring theme. In my absence, Sunnyside, my baby, raised from infancy and nurtured over the past 2 years, has been suffering from neglect. This is a combination of poor weather, kids’ sports contests, and probably a decent amount of me being unavailable to […]

Cold weather, Schmold weather

Introduction YHC has been on the IR off and on a lot lately. Probably a combination of 1) 48 yo 2) gung ho exerciser 3) poor stretcher.  Anyway, Sunnyside is a nice way to get back into the fold, and my M is looking forward to YHC’s beat down today. Under normal circumstances Mrs. Pete […]

Back-to-school beatdown

Introduction: The Sunnyside workout was out for most of the summer. Through a combination of family vacations, insane humidity, rain, and general summer laziness, kids and dads weren’t on board for “early” rising on their weekends. Turnout was, uh, greater than expected. I figured with all the new faces and multitude of kids there must be […]

World Cup extravaganza

Introduction I grew up playing soccer and it has always been my favorite sport to play, but it wasn’t until adulthood that I became a soccer fan or knew anything about the sports greatest stars, because I grew up in America. Soccer wasn’t televised growing up, and it wasn’t until my 20’s that Spanish TV became […]

Follow the Q!

This morning’s workout was moved from next weekend so it doesn’t interfere with the Gambler (shameless plug on behalf of the Chatham County contingent).  YHC took the Q after inquiring about a change of date.  I’ll admit I had a Dad fail, and promised Ledecky we’d do F3 this weekend.  When I realized it was […]

Sunnyside Olympic Games – Citius, Altius, Fortius

Citius, Altius, Fortius: Faster, Higher, Stronger Today’s workout was inspired by the Winter Olympics, as opening games in South Korea kicked off last week. YHC was pretty stoked to do this workout last weekend but the weather didn’t cooperate, and since I think we can do about whatever we want for this “unofficial” AO, I […]
