If you are active and healthy you don't need to worry at all. You don't seem to be consuming large amounts of either and in any case you lose salt when you sweat so you need to replace it.

Should you listen to music while running?

I don't usually wade into these debates because I think they are futile but if it was that dangerous there would be dozens of runners getting mown down by cars, cows and lawnmowers every week. A & E would be full of them.

 So hands up anyone that has ever read a new story about a runner being killed or seriously injured while running with headphones on  - because I haven't.  Not one.

London marathon - blue and red starts- how strict?

So he is actually perfectly fit to run but you want to draw attention to his medical condition to pull strings? Sounds a bit off to me to be honest. Sorry.

burn out???

No, you  can't "burn yourself out" on that sort of mileage but you can still overdo it if you are not used to it.

You have doubled your sessions from three to six without giving yourself time to recover so why are you surprised it hurts?  Start by doing 4 and get your body used to that before you increase it any further.

MGTH: when you get it, your running number will also have something on it to signify your start colour.

I read an interview with a British pilot that said there is an element of it but it doesn't go very far. It pretty much consists of asking few questions about their mental health and relying on them to tell the truth. You can see where the flaw is...

Should he be running a marathon at all if he has a medical condiion that makes him feel dizzy?

Because if he is fit to turn up and run 26 miles I don't think it's going to cut much ice with the stewards or anyone else and if it does I think they'd be more likely to advise him not to run.

Seriously, where the red and blue starts converge it's really easy to meet up. Just do that.

I am not an experrt CT but depression doesn't usually result in psychosis. He might have been hearing a voice telling him what to do (actually a symptom of paranoid schizophrenia) but equally he might have made what was, for him, a rational decision to do what he did when the opportunity arose. Certainly the evidence is that he was not having a psychotic episode but acting in a calm and controlled way, even "breathing normally" as he plunged to his death.

There is also the possibllity that he may have been suffering as a result of medication. It isn't unknown for anti depressants to cause very negative effects in some people who take them.

Ultimately we may never know what was actually going on in his mind. And it isn't like there is going to be much, if anything left of him to do toxicology tests on.

Case closed then.

I have to say with the amount of silly conspiracy theories I have read on other  fora (why people are so reluctant to accept the most logical explanation is beyond me) it is a relief to read the posts here.

I have even seen people querying why the pilot needed the toilet on such a short flight - WTF, because he is human!
