Runcrastination

Runcrastination: The act of needing to complete a run, but doing a hundred other things instead of walking out the door to start the run.

I most definitely succumb to both versions of runcrastination, nearly on a daily basis.  Running is one of the top things I think about daily.  But when it comes down to actually stepping out the door, it is dang hard to take that step! But when I have a list of things to do, such as vaccuuming, laundry, unloading the dishwasher, and grocery shopping, I usually can’t wait to get out and go for a run instead.

I feel like the runcrastination of finding things to do instead of running most often happens in the hot hot months of the summer, and also in the cold and dark months of the winter.  Yesterday, I spent at least a half hour in my running clothes, ready to walk out the door, but checking Facebook and Twitter, texting a friend, taking selfies, playing with Jazzy, and otherwise not getting out the door.  Once I finally started my run, I was fine.  Hot, sweaty, and HOT, but fine.

On the other hand, the runcrastination of having a bunch of things that need done, but going for a run instead, that happens ALL the time in the spring and fall, when the weather is most perfect, and all I want to do is be outside running!

Does anyone else have either or both of these runcrastinations in their life?
