Louise revealed she was able to run for five minutes following an operation after suffering a broken ankle.
The broadcaster penned: “The no longer broken foot is making progress. I am on @Couchto5K week 4, and managed five whole minutes running! Thanks @jowhiley.”
Radio 2 presenter Jo replied: “Never would I have thought that you’d be one of the @couch_5k tribe!! But that’s the beauty of it – it’s perfect for all according to their situation. So many people using it for rehabilitation after illness & injuries. Repair well @louiseminchin.”
