Over the last couple of years, I’ve been around 12 miles, last year we got up to 15, and this year I’ve done two long runs of 18 miles. 

  • Breakfast

I’m very boring, I have the same breakfast every single morning, it’s always porridge, it’s very Scottish of me, made with milk. I’ll have berries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and a banana.

  • Lunch

Lunch is usually quite similar most days – it will be some form of eggs on either avocado on toast or on a bagel.

  • Dinner

We’ll try and cook everything from fresh as much as we can, plenty of vegetables and we’ll alternate between salmon and red meat or chicken, and then carb wise it will be pasta, rice, potatoes. I think my favourite pre-race meal would be something like salmon and pesto pasta or gnocchi.


Regarding Eilish McColgan’s illness or injury in 2022, there is no information provided. But in 2014, she struggled with both illness and health problems.

She was eventually able to complete my first-ever consistent training block around the end of 2014 after battling illness for the majority of that year.

She had made a few changes to my plan over the Christmas break and regretted being sick after the long journey to South Africa.
