David Rudisha: Diet

David Rudisha: Diet

The Sweat Elite team spent a month in Suluta, the running hub of Ethiopia at the same time Mo Farah was preparing for the London Marathon 2019.
When discussing diet with Mo Farah, he mentioned that he tends to eat a relatively large breakfast before training, as he commences his morning training session at around 9am. Farah mentioned that his stomach is able to process food quite quickly, so he usually eats breakfast around 30-40 minutes before training, which usually consists of 2 pieces of toast (multi grain bread) with jam and butter as well as a small bowl of porridge and a cup of coffee. Post training, it’s a protein shake and carbohydrate drink and did express how important it is for him to consume this within the “25 minute window” post finishing his training session.

David Rudisha: Training Program

Although there have been reports and rumours that the group do fairly low mileage (50-60 miles/week maximum) we weren’t sure what to believe. This does turn out to be true. The 800m guys will run at maximum 55 miles in a week, David included… and often less.

David Rudisha: Mileage

I asked Colm O’Connell (Coach of David Rudisha and many sub 1:45 800m runners) the old question that first comes to mind for many: “How much mileage does David Rudisha do?” and he answered with “It’s hard to count, as we train very much on how he feels rather than having a specific program set focused on volume.” He thought a bit more and said “Around 90km a week in the base period and perhaps 60-70km in the racing period.”
