Taking to her Instagram page to share a post-workout selfie, the 45-year-old recently revealed she was back up and running again - despite pulling her calf muscle. "Beat the rain. Run done. Lazy day ahead for me. Happy Friday X #beyourbestself #5k (26 mins)," she simply wrote on Instagram.

Speaking to fellow BBC host Louise Minchin and triathlon presenter Annie Emmerson on their podcast Her Spirit, Naga shared: "When I run, I have my headphones in, brilliant music, and I don't run side by side, I run in front because I want to be on my own.

"So even though I'm with him, and he's there, we run separately because it's my time."
