Louise Minchin says injury is taking ‘longer than hoped’ to heal in ‘difficult’ update

Former BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin underwent a foot operation in December last year after sustaining an injury during a triathlon in 2019. And now, the TV star has admitted that her recovery has taken much longer than she had anticipated.

At the time, Louise said that she would have to go back to basics and learn to run again after resting her foot in order to let it heal.

Nine months later, the BBC star is running again, but taking things at a slower pace.

Last night she gave fans an update on her training ahead of the London Marathon taking place at the weekend.

Louise, who left BBC Breakfast last month, said it had been a “difficult” journey.

“I can’t believe it’s nearly a year since I did my last marathon and since then I’ve had a foot operation,” she informed fans via Instagram.

“And to be honest with you it’s taken me way longer than I’d hoped to get back to running any kind of distance,” she went on to add.

Louise explained that she was using a digital watch, which is helping her to train and get her strength back.

The 53-year-old presenter admitted that she can just about run 5k at the moment, but has been free swimming in the meantime.

Many took to the comments section of her post to congratulate the star on her recovery and to thank her for inspiring them to get out and run.

Instagram user vic_5960 wrote: “You’ve done amazing Louise it takes time but you’ve got patience and determination. I’ve had both my ankles fused. I know what you’ve been through, though I’m not able to run . So pleased you are getting back to your target distance.”

“Brilliant Louise. Well done on the rehab. Get yourself to a parkrun for coffee and cake,”user d3an074 added.

A third person, using the handle steviebrighton1, shared their own experience: “Broke my foot running in December which is now perfectly fine. I’ve struggled with motivation since then. I have a place in the London marathon next year for my 60th. Your post has given me the boost to get going again. Thank you.”
