You'll never believe what happened last night. At about half past two in the morning I woke up needing to use the toilet but when I got there I keeled over !! Apparently I made such a thud that Fay woke up and, fearing the worst, came to find me ... I was still on the floor.
Later she described me as suffering from 'Exercise Associated Collapse' [see Lore of Running (4th edition) by Tim Noakes, pp244 - 249]. Fay has first hand experience of looking after me in this situation as I've suffered EAC after each of my last two 24 hr races.
The only difference this time was that I have quite a nasty gash on my forehead.
No running today then.
