But last week, the morning show host shared that she had made significant progress. Taking to Instagram, she looked radiant as she posed for a post-run selfie, which she captioned: "It's been a while since I've been able to run 5k non-stop. Injuries take time to recover from."

The star went on: "Patience isn't a virtue of mine. Feels good to get back on the road to fitness. Happy Sunday."
