TV host Trisha Goddard was on GMTV this morning sharing her story of how she battled and beat breast cancer. She revealed that exercise was a large part of her routine during radiation and chemotherapy, and says that it helped her get through the ordeal.

“A week after I had my last radiotherapy I went mountain running in Maine in the States. I ran while I was having daily radiotherapy. I used to park my car on the other side of the park. I would do a 20- to 40-minute run, run into the radiotherapy department, they’d say slow down, have radiotherapy, then I could continue with the rest of the 20-minute run. I trailed mud into radiotherapy, I said, ‘Hurry up you’re spoiling my running times!'”
