Bought Ronnie O'sullivan's new autobiography today. Just thumbed through it so far, but he is absolutely passionate about our sport and it seems to be as much about running as snooker (it's even called "Running").

Complete with stories of racing, training with people like Eamon Martin and Jason Ward and a 10K PB of 34'50" shows serious commitment.

Anyone with the concentration to knock in 147 breaks will have the obsessiveness to be above average in most disciplines. the last interview that I saw him do was mostly aa out running despite being during the world championships. I didn't think he was that quick though!! But he did say he was doing about 60 miles per week at the time!

He was nearly two minutes quicker than me at the Southern XC champs the year he set his 10k PB. Imagine how quick he'd be if he stopped messing about with all that snooker.  

Ronnie stats.

Too true! and he'd be happier- it has helped him suppress his demons apparently.

Remeber a report on him getting some impressive 38 minute XC times in RW years ago.

He filed a glowing report on "The Chimp Paradox":

I've a picture of him at the 2009 National XC. However the file appears corrupted as I can't get it bigger than thumb nail size despite being 8GB.

Does he run in drag?  He appears to be a member of a ladies running club.

I seem to recall he was partial to an alice band at one time, but the correct club name is the rather unique Woodford Green AC with Essex Ladies.

Make of that what you will.

He runs with a local club when he`s in Sheffield for the World Champs.

i re member him saying in an interview that running had become his main love.......he wished that he could do that fulltime........but he needed to play the snooker to pay the bills........snooker had become his everyday job that he had to do so that he could then run in his spare time.....

He's got dark hair hasn't he? Doesn't look much like him.

Maybe it's the one in the blue boots holding the bags

18/11/2013 at 12:12

Looks like he is talking to Alex Higgins

Just finished the book Running and as said it's a great read and focused heavily on running. However it almost seems that he wrote the book as much for himself psychologically as he did for the readership

 

The book by Steve Peters looks great I might give it a read. Struggle with stress and "flight" mode so perhaps that would help
