A Quick Update and Shameless Promotioning

I figured I had better give a quick update to let everyone know what I have been up to lately.  Then I figured I would shamelessly promote things my friends are working on and well as myself.


THE UPDATE:
Yesterday marked the official beginning of a change in my workout plan.  For the next 12 weeks I will be doing a modified version of P90X.  I say modified because I've changed some of the exercises and I don't use the videos for most of the workouts.  The next three weeks will look like this:

Sunday:  Ren X workout (Checkout that workout here!)
Monday:  Chest & Back, Ab Ripper X, plus 30 minutes of cardio on an elliptical.
Tuesday:  Plyrometrics (AM), Ren X workout (PM)
Wednesday:  Shoulders & Arms, Ab Ripper X, plus 30 minutes of cardio on an elliptical.
Thursday:  Yoga X, plus 30 minutes of cardio on an elliptical.
Friday:  Legs & Back, Ab Ripper X, plus 30 minutes of cardio on an elliptical.
Saturday:  Rest

SHAMELESS PROMOTION #1:
Yesterday Ted and I had a friend join us for the Ren X workout.  With the heat we made sure to stay hydrated and only did one set of each workout as apposed to two.  Our friend who join is Matt, who works out a the Minnesota Renaissance Festival with us and does a weekly podcast along with Salsa and Jena (. . . and Corwin too).  Apropos of Nothing is the name of the podcast and they talk about everything and nothing all at the same time.

Go take a listen and then head over to Facebook and like their Facebook page as well.   If you like what you hear, then consider heading over to their Kickstarter page and making a pledge to help them get better equipment for the show (only 11 days left).

SHAMELESS PROMOTION #2:
Speaking of Kickstarters, this brings me to Alice the Cook.

From her Facebook Page:
"Alice the Cook is a food historian who writes food articles for Renaissance Magazine as well as performs cooking demonstrations at various festivals."


Alice makes some of the most delicious food that you can image and all from raw, organic produce, meats, and spices.  For her Kickstarter she is looking to raise enough money to build a wood fired oven to cook fresh baked bread during her demonstrations.  If you love good food, head on over to her Kickstarter page and consider making a pledge to help her reach her goal.

You can also head over to her website for more information about what she does and where she will be performing.  Or you can check our her Marketplace on Facebook to purchase one of her cook books.

SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION:
Now that I've covered other people, it's time for myself.  As most of you know I play the part of Will Scarlet for the Robin Hood and the Merry Men Show at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival.  We are a kid friendly show that performs several times each day at the Gypsy/Sherwood Stage.  The show begins August 18th and is open every weekend (plus Labor Day) through the end of September.  Make sure to stop by and see our show.  On the especially hot days, be sure to get a front row seat.

You can also stay to watch the other two amazing acts on our stage.  Fandazzi Fire Circus will amaze you with their live music and fire.  Caravan Dance and Music will wow you with their belly dancing and live music.

SPREAD THE WORD
Last but not least, I ask only this, if you like what you see, "Like" the page Facebook page and share it with your friends and family.  It's how we get more people to hear about us.
