    Aug242014noon

    Good morning everyone!

    Hows everyone in buzzland! from what im witnessing and reading daily it seems this place gets nuttier by the minute! NOTHING surprises me anymore on here! 100mile races,83 mile races(WELL DONE SIR BOLTY AGAIN) 50th Marathons(come back soon oggie) marathons,half marathons,10k,5k 1 mile,10 steps,sub 6 minute mileing(stick in there mr barber) NOTHING surprises me!

    Since my own best run ever at st albans park run 2 weeks ago ive not ran an inch!ive worked lke a trojan at work but my trainers have stayed hanging up in the utility room! i know its what i said id do from now until the operation but you know big old hollywood!im itching to attempt the unattemptable lol!

    Ive had an idea brewing in my head(ive lots of space up there!)  for the last 2 weeks.Weve got The Great Oggie Run part 2 for Little Louie on the 7th september(if you havent sponsored him yet then get yourselves over to his giving page and change that kids life as much we can) and i wanted to attempt something very very very tough that will push my body and mind to the very limits!

    This is where i need your help,i want to attempt 7 PBs in 7 hours on the 7th for louie,i have 5 events sorted allready,i need your help for the next 2. i need you to throw some ideas at me,challenge me,see if i can beat your best,test me.try to break me. The 5 events i have lined up are

    7am Most Press Ups In An Hour attempt (current pb 1731)

    8.10am Cycle A Marathon On An Exercise Bike In Under An Hour(current pb 64 minutes and a few seconds)

    9.30am Run A Half Marathon (current in pain pb this year 2 hours 11mins at st albans)

    12pm Plank Challenge (current pb 3 minutes 47 seconds i think lol)

    12.15pm Most Press Ups In A Minute(current pb 89)

    12.30pm Buzzers challenge

    between 1-2pm buzzers challenge!

    You guys and girls will tell me the last 2 challenges and hopefully that will take me up to the 7 pbs in 7 hours attempt!

    I think that will keep my juices flowing for the next 2 weeks! i wont train for any of these attempts,im going to try to show you how much will power and strength of mind can make you almost invincible!!(hopefully lololol)

    So ...fire away buzzers, suggestions are most definately welcome!!

    • Berlin_Bolt 'Fantastic idea Lord Dave! I agree with Dave CH, you've got to have a drinking challenge, maybe make it the last one!! Have to have a think about this one! Can't be anything that would wreck your hips!! Could you film it all and put it on YouTube? That would really raise the profile of Louie's Helping Hands!! Go for it! You ARE invincible!!! :)))' added 24th Aug 2014

    • ymonks 'I’ve been pondering this challenge all day and can’t really come up with anything more sensible than the brilliant 5k walking challenge that Kat came up with. Things that have passed though my head have been: Hoovering (eg how quickly can you thoroughly hoover the downstairs), stair climbing, window cleaning, bed making, driving round the M25 without getting cross and not going over the speed limit. Furthest you can punch a cushion across the room. As I said, nothing sensible. This evening I’ve come up with a swimming challenge – maybe7 lengths of a local swimming pool or 7 min swim of a local canal/river? There is always your travellator hill, but that could be a bit extreme after the day you will already have had. Ooh what about a boxing challenge?' added 24th Aug 2014

    • hollywooddave 'Good morning flying machine! Hoovering? What's that ? Lololol!! Yeah I think Kats challenge will be number 6 for me ! It's a great challenge and one that I've never done before! I can maybe see if my swimming baths are open to public on Sundays ? That could be a thought ! I did get a top score on a boxing machine on holiday! But sadly I don't know where one is around here! Keep the ideas coming! They are great :))' added 25th Aug 2014

    • DavidHaworth1965 'Mr Hollywood, I sincerely hope you are asleep right now. I'm sorry I have been out of the loop recently. Firstly, I really hope you are feeling better after your terrifying experience. You take it easy pal, for a while at least, no more virtual kissing, you know that is bad for you, (real kissing is so much better!) Now about those challenges, if indeed you do do them. I'm a bit concerned about the half marathon; couldn't you do 10K instead? I'm just worried about your timetable, or perhaps 7K as you are liking the 7s so much? Bet you don't have a PB for 7K!! I was going to suggest something involving a Hollywood Hugathon, that was before that naughty Bev brought up the kissing! Think it would be good if the 7th challenge was all about 7's, 7 Brides for 7 Hollywoods? Snow Hollywood and the seven dwarves? Dwarf tossing? No let's not go there... 7 deadly sins? No perhaps not, 7-11, Hollywood goes shopping, he has an hour to buy seven items of our choice...no. I'll keep thinking... Look after yourself Dave!' added 28th Aug 2014

I really wouldn't wish that feeling of not knowing if your going to breath again on anyone:(( now for the challenges ! Im loving the 7 brides for Hollywood! Think of the possibilities lol! The tossing the dwarf sounds too rude ;) I'm thinking of attempting to run the travellator 7 times? But I'll be on my last legs by then! Keep thinking pal! I've still a headache and eye ache today and my chest is ever so slightly tight so I promise to be careful:))' added 28th Aug 2014

    • Berlin_Bolt 'Morning Big Fella. Hope you are taking it steady today. Was worried about you last night. I know you'll be well looked after by MrsH today! Thinking about the challenges, you were a golf pro and tennis captain, why not something to do with either sport? Keepy Uppy with a tennis ball is really hard! 7 times up? Tim Henman did it 100 times!! Golf, driving range challenge? Just an idea. Take care today! :)' added 28th Aug 2014

    • hollywooddave 'Morning sir bolty:) I'm still alive YIPIEE !! Was an uneventful night but a scary one ! I couldn't sleep deeply but I did manage to sleep:) ref the challenge I could maybe play the 7th hole 7 times to see if I can get a hole in one! Or I could play 7 different tennis players in 7 minutes lol! Those challenges are a bit easy though pal:) I wanted to be pushed both mentally and physically! Mind you after what happened a couple of nights ago I just want to stay alive lol!! CCCHHAAASRRRGGGEEE' added 28th Aug 2014

    • Runwithroxy 'Sorry Dave arrived at this tale of yours very late. Laughed myself silly through the first 2/3rd thinking of the drinking and kissing and welly throwing ideas. Then sobered up quickly with the scare you gave everyone. I 'm with Tania on this - we need you around a lot longer. So lets find you a sedate 7th challenge - a jigsaw or knitting perhaps??!!' added 29th Aug 2014

    • hollywooddave 'Morning Jane! A 777 piece jigsaw could be fun ! Or a 777 stitch knitting challenge lol! My heart still fluttering a bit now and I'm a bit wobbly on me feet but I'm keeping a very very close eye on it! I've no time to be ill lol! To much work to do!

    • gaellebryant 'Just read all this... Hope you are feeling better Dave. What a idea you have and incredible you are to think of doing those 7 challenges before your operation... My challenge would be the must full press ups you can do in a minute. I can do 43... ' added 29th Aug 2014

    • hollywooddave 'Good evening gaelle:) I hope you are well! Wow 43 in a minute !! That's brilliant and mighty strong!! The most press ups in a minute challenge is allready on my list :) Angus son hamish challenged me a few months back and I managed 89! I'm not sure I can break that but I'll give it my best shot!

    • KickAS_Kat 'Hope you're feeling even a tiny bit better today HD? How about standing on your better leg for 7 minutes without falling over? That's really going to test your quads and core as well as your balance.......or 7 x 1 minute consecutive planks with 7 seconds rest between each? :)' added 29th Aug 2014
