“Short run (3k) ahead of a round of golf,” she proudly added before telling fans about her “mission” for the day.

Last month, keen golfer and cyclist Naga opened up about her husband James Hagger’s recent bike accident during a podcast chat with two BBC stars.
Speaking to her co-star Louise Minchin and BBC Triathlon presenter Annie Emmerson on the latest edition of their Her Spirit podcast, the TV star spoke about the incident and it’s aftermath.
She said: “My husband got hit by a car last week while cycling.”
Her concerned co-stars exclaimed: “Is he alright?”
“He’s battered and bruised, but he’s okay,” she went on to explain, before revealing the accident had sparked a new set of concerns for her.
Naga said: “So I’m petrified of cycling on the roads, absolutely petrified, I’m scared of traffic.
“I think everyone’s an idiot either who’s on a bike or in a car because they don’t have road sense,” she went on to say.
The news of James’ cycling collision comes one week after BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood told fans that she had been involved in a bike accident.
According to her co-star Dan Walker, the popular television star was left “bruised and battered” after being knocked off her bike by a car.
Carol was taken to hospital to be checked out and returned to work soon after.
