Mike Buss has eaten a diet of jelly babies, fry-ups and energy drinks
A former soldier is midway through a bid to set a time endurance record for running on a treadmill.
Mike Buss, 35, a personal trainer from Highworth in Swindon, is trying to break 20 different world records while raising money for Help for Heroes.
Former Green Jacket Mr Buss started running at Swindon's brunel shopping centre at 1200 BST on Saturday and will stop at 1200 BST on Monday.
He has already run 55 treadmill miles in 24 hours.
'I can do better'
Mr Buss's hearing was shattered by an IRA bomb whilst serving as a L/Cpl in Northern Ireland 12 years ago.
He hopes to raise £100,000 for the Help for Heroes charity, which helps wounded soldiers, by Christmas 2010.
He said: "It all came about from reading the Guinness World Records and one after another I thought 'I can do that, and I can do better.'
"I've had a good laugh with this, though there have been a couple of low points at about five o'clock in the morning."
Further record-breaking bids will include setting the Ridgeway running record and ascending the Empire State Building by stairs.
