The benefits of procrastination

Although I've managed to stick to my plan and run every other day, I'm noticing procrastinating has benefits...my work surfaces are gleaming, my underwear drawer is colour coded and my hair grips have been sorted by length. What about you?

Nah, not me. We were talking about this yesterday. I just do it. Resistance is futile πŸ™‚

Hair grips sorted by length??? Blimey! I'm with Misswobble on this. I never hang around, just get out there and run. It does take me a while to faff around in readiness but that's another story 😊

There's nothing worse than odd sized hair grips... well obviously there are lots of things but you can't be too careful.

You're all far too smug! I'm only in week 3, stepping out in public in Lycra is daunting. I'm still doing it, I just have to psych myself up with a bit of pointless activity first....paper clips now sorted by colour too...

Yeah me too. Organising stuff Is not my forte 😊

I cringed at the thought of me in Lycra tights but they were much better at hauling everything in than expected. Don't worry as no-one is watching you, you just think they are πŸ™‚

Yes, no procrastination here either, unless I haven't quite decided on my route. Getting my kit on though is another thing all together... have I remembered my tissues/scrunchie/headphones/music/camera/tissues (again) ....go to loo... better go again...

Nah, that's dithering! No procrastination as to whether to run or not, just faffage!

I usually forget that my running watch isn't charge so have forced procrastination while it's plugged in. Tidying is definitely not my first (or second, or tenth) choice though!
