I am not really interested in cars. But have watched Top Gear a few times and have been amused. Clarkson seemed a very good presenter. I thought that if the Beeb sacked him, the other channels would snap him up.
But if it is true that the producer ended up in A&E, maybe not!
I agree that Clarkson acts a lot as if he was god's gift and irreplaceable. Which is like someone else, who is not to be mentioned.
I did my 18 miler on Friday, a good day to run. But I was slower than the plan says to be (slower than 3 hrs 15) as I walked a bit towards the end.
I thought a bit of speed work might help me go a bit faster. But I take your point, Stylish, that endurance is needed mostly. I walked when my legs got quite achy when I could have continued really. But I didn't want to overdo it as I had a long day's work the next day.
