Eilish McColgan Suffering From Illness Or Injury
No information is available regarding Eilish McColgan's illness or injury in 2022. However, she was entangled in both disease and health issues in 2014.
After fighting illness for the bulk of 2014, she was finally able to finish my first ever consistent training block towards the end of last year.
She regretted becoming sick after the long travel to South Africa after making a few alterations to my itinerary over the Christmas holiday.
She said, "The immune system is weakened by frequent, intense training, which makes it very simple to catch illnesses. My nemesis seems to be flying, and I struggle mightily to avoid being sick, especially after lengthy flights."
Although it may sound a little over the top, illness does influence an athlete's training plan. For example, a primary cold virus might go after a week, but it can linger in the body until an athlete has another demanding week of training, which can reappear. She dealt with this throughout 2014 and found it to be quite annoying.
She eventually started jogging again after being sick during the first two weeks in Stellenbosch, but not before hurting her ankle.
Usually, a twisted ankle wouldn't be too problematic, and she could continue exercising, but this time was different since the pain didn't go away and worsened every day.
She stated, 'I've had to build my strength and my speed and there have been injuries and illnesses along the way. I was in great shape only a few weeks ago just prior to the Worlds but then picked up an illness in Oslo and had a hamstring niggle.'
