    Good afternoon everyone!

    The atmosphere for Sundays great oggie run 2/ little Louie run is reaching fever pitch! I truly believe you buzzers are the best in the world! How you guys and girls come together time and time and time again when called truly is amazing! Be very very proud of who you are!

    Many thanks for all your comments on my last blog! Suggestions aplenty for my own super Sunday and many thanks for your concern about my breathing problem attack last Tuesday night! Very scary and something I hope never happens again! I'm not going to lie, my breathing not 100% now but NOTHING will stop me come Sunday!

    Right... Below is the list of my challenges on Sunday, please feel free to jion me in some, do them the same time I'm doing them! It will help me so so much knowing I've fellow buzzers attempting these challenges!


    6.30am. Most press ups in an hour

    7.35am. Cycle a marathon in an hour

    8.50 am . Plank challenge

    9am most press ups in a minute

    9.30am . Run a half marathon in under 2 hours 30 mins ( running at same time as bolty and simmy)

    12.10pm fastest 777 crunches challenge

    1pm stand on 1 leg for 7 minutes barefoot! ( with Kat)

    1.20pm. Fastest 5k walk challenge( with Kat)

    2pm down a pint of beer in 7 seconds!( gonna enjoy that!)

    and my own personal challenge is to try and stay alive after all that lololol! Mrs H has allready asked me to sign a will!!



    Oooo ps!! I'll be videoing all my attempts and compressing it down into a 10 min or so montage! Does anybody know how to get videos uploaded to here ? Or if not I can send to someone to put on Facebook page ? I think us buzzers have a Facebook page? Let me know :))

    • gloshawk 'Ah, I knew that you wouldn't do it by halves - full pints only with you, eh, beer and all of the other challenges too. Crazy and inspiring as always. Great stuff. I don't think we can upload videos to RB (I know Vin has tried before) but we can certainly do it on FB. If you want to send it to me, I'd be delighted to do the honours. On a yard!!' added 2nd Sep 2014

    • DaveCH 'That`s a tough program Dave. The only one where I could even think about doing it would be the pint in 7 secs. But how long does it have to stay down?' added 2nd Sep 2014

    • hollywooddave 'Hey Swiss dave:) the pint in 7 seconds has to stay down for 7 minutes to be classified a pass! I'm not worried about the first pint ! It's the other 10 I'm worried about lol!

    • AngusMc 'Evening HD, I didn't know that you had breathing problems last week. Must have happened whilst I was away in Northumberland, hope you are ok and got if checked out etc. You have devised an incredibly tough set of challenges to complete, there is no other buzzer who could get close to what you will be doing. The focus will be on Louie and others who are less able than us ( and maybe that pint at the end) . You are as crazy as Oggie!' added 2nd Sep 2014

    • HOBSCowboy 'Fantastic HD - Brilliant set of challenges, I'll join you in most press ups in a minute (haven't done 1 in the last 10 years) and the balancing one. Only you could concieve of these darstadly challenges and then carry them out all on way - you're brilliantly bonkers!' added 2nd Sep 2014
